    Another solo hike today in the Nature Preserve. The wind was cold and fierce, with mostly cloudy skies, so thermal top and long pants were in order.

    But the incredible rocks, many with colored lichens, trees, and expansive vistas more than made up for the effort. And the silver sage and cacti added another dimension to the experience.

    Not another soul on the trail, as on Saturday, and the solitude and stillness were deeply satisfying.
