Nice way to spend New Year's Day. It was a little cold and overcast, but nothing too serious. It's starting to get green up there which is a very good thing.

I like this version of Shell Ridge hike. Up to the top, down to the saddle, and then back up to the top before returning along the ridge.

Nice weather even with the rain earlier this morning. The trails were almost completely dry, and there were very few fellow travelers. I went pretty hard because I'm getting ready for my trip up to Trinity Lake next week!

I kept it pretty mellow because my Achilles has been not so friendly. I may take a few days off before my trip up to Trinity next week just for self-preservation. The vegetation is getting close to its summer regime, but there are still solid patches of green.
