Christmas Eve morning was wet and raw.
Visit #1052, Saturday 24 December 16, 9:15-10:45AM, 3.6 miles.
Temps in the high 30's/low 40's with a cold, steady rain.
Like last week, bad weather did not deter me from getting out on the trails. Neither would this week.
I hiked roughly the same route as last week too, but took a couple detours to pick up litter in rarely visited spots.
From the "packed" parking lot, you can see the weather was not for girly-men, or really girly-girls. Mine was the only vehicle there.
Not much was happening around Mirror Lake either. The ice sheen on the surface gives you an idea of how cold it was.
By visiting those seldom reached locations, I managed to pick up more litter than you would expect this time of year. My Christmas gift to you is a slightly cleaner Hubbard Park.
