I managed to squeeze a quick hike late Monday afternoon in Montgomery Woods. Temperatures were probably the coldest that I can remember in the last couple of years. The soil was frozen and filled with ice crystals in certain spots.
One thing I love about the late afternoon in the redwoods, is how the sun shines into the canopy. Usually, just the tallest trees manage to catch the rays, and this allows you to see branches and limbs and overall canopy structure that otherwise goes unnoticed.
Despite the cold, the time of day, and the fact that it was Monday, there were still several visitors to the grove.
