Mt Wire today. This is my second summit of this lovely hill. Today was gorgeous with sunny skies. The top 25% of this one was a fair amount of "post hole" tracking through the fresh snow of this week. Nonetheless, was a great workout and was sweating like a beast for the middle third. After the summit I went down the first mile then up to the East along the gas pipe trail to go to the Oxen tie up hill. This is my new name for it as there is a wire loop at the top that for some reason reminds me of oxen. Saw a perfect Bluebird but no one else on the day except one trail chick coming down as I was going up. This route took 1:30 and wore me out. 51 minutes to the summit. Broke a link in the microspikes on a rock, will have to do some surgery on it.
