"Blustery Christmas Eve Hike" (pictures)
My mother up visiting from Georgia for Christmas she was itching to hike Mt. Major as always. However she had forgot her winter pants in the rental vehicle. As we began up the Mt. Major trail the wind was already making her legs cold. So we opted for a shorter hike. She hadn't been to Forest Society's Pine mountain at the Morse preserve before so that is where we headed.
After parking we made the pleasant accent, a few icy patches but otherwise was pretty good footing. The view from the open summit area was great as always. The wind was cold so we took some pics and looped around the back for an easier descent. We joined back onto the main trail and back down to the parking lot.
