It was such a fine morning, and I've done all my shopping, so I decided to try one of my favorite short hikes. This trail features continuous views as it switches back-and-forth up the lava flows and through the forests. It zooms up 2000' in 2.5 miles, so it's steep at times. Even with the snow on the trail, it's excellent footing and the climb goes quickly. Of course it starts at over 7000' elevation, so you'll be breathing hard! There was quite a lot of wind (20-25K) and the air temperature at the top was just above freezing. It felt good to close the hood on my jacket and keep my ears warm!
