I tried to get up to Highwood Ridge and then walk on the ridge, but I chickened out and decided to go back to the trail and followed it.

Looking at the Pocaterra Ridge. Perhaps in summer I can try Mt Tywhitt and Pocaterra Ridge at the same day. Even better If I can fit Highwood ridge as well.

It's rare to have such a nice day in winter. Usually it snowing or flurries that I don't get much visibility in mountain.
