Tecumseh. March 10, 2015

We revisited Tecumseh last Tuesday morning.  Time was short, so we had to choose a peak that was relatively small and close to home.

Tecumseh Trail and Sosman Trail.
5 miles roundtrip with 2200 feet of elevation gain.

This was a routine hike up a familiar, nearby peak.  The trail was well packed, but since the forecast called for warm temperatures, we wore snowshoes to prevent postholing on the way back down.

Going up!

Last few dozen feet --

Summit!

Descent!

We hope to get out on the trails once a week for the foreseeable future, so I should have another trip report/photo gallery posted soon.

Happy hiking, folks!
