Pictures from my hike:

I didn’t have a lot of time, and didn’t make it as far out as I had wanted to, but I was running out of daylight and was excited to get in the hike that I did. It was my first time using my new microspikes which made a huge difference on the slushy, icy trail. More to come on those.
