It was a mild New Year's Eve. The high was 43. The low was 24. It was 40 and hazy at observation. It looks like we'll be receiving a bit of rain this afternoon, so be prepared for slick trails. The ice has become a hazard. Be sure to factor this additional obstacle into your trip - being cautious on ice requires both time and attention. You won't make the same miles as you can in the summer.
I spent yesterday taking short hikes around camp, sunbathing and talking to dayhikers. Special thanks to Mike Wood and the Ketelle's for hiking me up some reading material for the new year!
