on friday i decided my saturday trail would be red pine lake. i have only been on that trail once this year in the early spring and wanted to get on it again while it is free of snow. it is one of my favorites. when i went to climb into bed at 1:00 am saturday morning, i checked my phone for messages and saw that orion had text me at 9:30. it read, "pfeifferhorn, 5:00 am tomorrow". sweet coincidence! so, i set my alarm for 4:30 am. yikes. we turned on our headlamps and cruised up the trail with the full moon moving toward the horizon on our right. it was fantastic. we made it to the top of the mountain and back to the truck in under four hours.
