Looking down the trail to Great Hill
Since it was such a nice afternoon outside, I decided to do a sunset hike to Great Hill. To add a slight twist, I hiked up in my alpine ski boots with my skis and poles.
With the trail well packed by snowmobilers, I took a few brief runs as I waited for the sunset - basically, it's like a short, narrow beginner run.
The sunset was a nice one. Almost as enjoyable was skiing down to the bottom after the sunset - so much faster than walking!
