High 28, Low 0. 5" of new snow. Very Windy, with crazy drifts, I literally stepped into a drift yesterday up to my chest on Alum Cave Trail. It took an incredibly long time hiking up from the bluffs back to the lodge. The sun came out for a little while yesterday, making for a really nice hike, the camera battery died, so not so many pictures. You all know those icicles that hang off the alum bluffs? the ones that come crashing down when the sun shines? I always knew it was bound to happen, I finally got hit by one, right above the knee, big ole' bruise. It's supposed to stay cold and keep snowing today/tonight. The "new" lodge is the name for the center lodge with 2 side rooms.
