With the rain clearing out, I headed up to Tecumseh for an afternoon hike. While I was dragging a bit for the first half of the hike, I was able to dial it up a bit for the second half and get a halfway decent workout.

Though things were cloudy at first, the views became increasingly strong as blue sky started to break through. Other than some black flies along the ski trails, the hike was mostly bugless.
