Went up the Mountain Loop Road to check out the state of the ice caves. It was a gorgeous hike up--I was the one-woman advertisement for Microspikes, though. It's a popular trail, so many people were there. No one had footgear with good traction except for me, and the trail was thick with ice. I got up in record time, but had to stop and demonstrate the spikes multiple times. A few people are definitely going to head out and buy them.

The caves are looking fantastic. There's an extra little arch in front of the main cave, which is large enough for a person to stand under. And so they do. I spotted about 5 people posing under the arch, although I didn't see anyone venture into the main cave this time. A bunch of people  decided to slide down the hill above and to the side of the caves, though, which isn't the brightest idea ever. Every year, I wonder if there's going to be another fatality. People just won't take the warnings seriously.

Still a lovely day and nice energetic hike.
