Another February day with unseasonable high temperatures and a sunny sky! You really couldn’t pick a better day for hiking if you tried.
This hike has quite a bit of elevation gain and it felt good to be working on improving my climbing ability. Unfortunately, I was a bit overdressed and didn’t feel like peeling off a layer. Thankfully, there was enough canopy to cool down, along with the occasional breeze!
No animals seen today, which has been unusual for our hikes. The scenery, however, made up with some beautiful landscapes and streams!
