They did not turn back until the weather got worse, on their way down they were caught in a complete blizzard where visibility was almost completely gone. At this point they made the decision to make a snow cave shelter.

Wait, don’t go!” Surprised to see the teen only crossing the street now, the priest tried one last time to corral the fugitive. “Son wait, we need to talk!” Without looking back, the teen hurried his footsteps to a jog. A block further, the penance seeker, disappeared from the priest sight and vanished into the shadows of a Brooklyn park. The priest stood bewildered on the snow covered entrance way to his church, not knowing what to do next. The northern wind of the winter evening awoke the pastor from his stupor.
Spending that weekend in a almost Fargo-esque environment with some strange characters and beautiful scenery was an amazing experience. This story starts after having spent 8 hours in a car and having the realization I was getting sick the day before. I woke up at 7 o’clock to get ready and eat before I met my mentor.
