Heading up to the overlook of the Overlook Trail to cut back some juniper infringing on the path. Most noticeable when it is cold and wet - you've tried so hard to keep your feet dry and warm, when you come upon a section where the treadway is flanked by ankle to knee high wet stuff...
It's best to remove the offending foliage when it is dry, and you have long sleeves and gloves.
Made it up while it was still light, but it was fading fast. headlamp made a big difference.
Still a bit to do, but much better than when I started.

Run back down from the overlook by headlamp.
Cool and pleasant with a 3/4 moon.
Made it down through all of the rocks, damp leaves and slippery pine needles. Was getting close to the truck on a flat level section of trail, when my right foot caught in the loop of the shoelace for my left shoe - immediate face plant.
No one around to applaud my rapid spring back to my feet and recovery and the swift completion of my run...
