Nice, vigorous hike today with Mark, Greg and Carl.  We parked by the side of the road just off exit 20 – High Point – and started hiking about 7:30.  By  the time we got back at 10:30 the road was jammed:

Lots of cars parked by High Point

There is a Murat Bridge, a memorial to someone who died in 2013 at the age of 33.  I am going to try to figure out who he/she was.  Impressive they inspired such a nice bridge:

We were glad we had our micro-spikes along, it was pretty icy for the last mile or so.  Wintry and snowy on the summit:

And of course on the peaks around here you share the summit with technology:

Nice workout, lots of fun.  We are so lucky to live around here!
