It was a cold rainy Christmas day but I managed to get in a short hike at Harvery Bear Ranch. Since we just had several weeks of rain I decided to try the Roop Road entrance hoping the higher trails would not be so muddy. For the most part the trails we better but still had plenty of slipping and sliding.
I ventured out and around Mummy mountain and cut over the top although I later figured out was not the main Mummy Mountain trail. There was plenty of wildlife and I got my best shots of they year of a Golden Eagle along with some deer, Wild Turkey, Northern Flicker and a first time siting of a Spotted Towhee. Overall a good day.
