I thought a mid-winter hike at the Keystone Arch Bridge Trail would be different from all the other “pleasant weather” adventures we have had at this historic place.  Turns out it was most definitely different!  The picture below is the beginning of the trail which was literally a bobsled track. The heavy snow, melt, then freeze turned the trail into a 12 inch or more thick ice block.  Spikes were mandatory…two hikers tried without…and survived!  It was an adventure and a beautiful warm sunny day, go figure!
