And one day, out of the blue, I started to run - simply because I wanted to. I've always done whatever I felt like doing in life. People may try to stop me, and convince me I'm wrong, but I won't change. Murakami
It's a beautiful, clear morning up top. The high yesterday reached 21 degrees. The low dipped down to 7 degrees. It was 16 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation and there is about 4 inches of snow left up top. The trails are starting to get slick, so be prepared to slip a bit if you're planning on hiking up. The roads are currently closed, but you can check on their status on the Park Service's twitter feed. Enjoy the day!
