Route: Ski trails, Mt. Tecumseh Trail, Sosman Trail, (summit), Sosman Trail, Mt. Tecumseh Trail, various ski trails

Trails were generally dry (ground frost sinking in an inch or two). A little isolated frozen runoff on the ski trails (which are virtually all mowed now), but nothing warranting traction.

Nice sunrise with a slight temperature inversion.
