After a kind of gloomy weekend weatherwise, I was eager to get out under blue skies.

Starting on the ski slopes, I Micropsiked up to the first viewpoint of the Tecumseh Trail, then continued up the hiking trail to the summit. Just prior to reaching the highpoint, I was rewarded with a nice sunset display from the top of the Sosman Trail.
