Today I got to see what Mockingbird Lookout looks like in the daylight! You see, it was this Lookout where I rang in 2019! Back then we hiked up in the dark, celebrated in the dark and hiked down in the dark. When the opportunity was put out there to do this hike today, there was no himmming nor hummming, I jumped on board. I wanted to see what this place was made off! It is a a lovely lookout with of course a 360 degree view. We had a beautiful day to experience it but it was windy.
The route up is a dirt road. It was clear in areas with hard packed snow for some stretches.
We approached the Lookout at a different direction from the night of the 31st.
This is the initial view.
Talk about vistas! Mountain peaks stretched the entire length of our view.
I captured this photo from the Lookout balcony.

This is the best time of year to be here which is a weekday early season. Soon the Lookout Person will be home, being close up will then be off limits. ATV & Side-By-Side sportsters will soon be frequenting the surrounding area interrupting the peace and quiet. As has been the case these past few weeks, I got to make new friends and catch up with old ones today while out enjoying our playground.
