Love is the measure of life: only so far as we love do we really live. John Burroughs
It's another beautiful morning up top. The high yesterday reached 29 degrees. The overnight low got down to 16 degrees. It was 19 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation and there is no snow remaining up top. The trails are sure to be a little slick with freezing overnight temperatures, but you should be able to make it up without traction devices and a bit of caution. Enjoy the day!
Sunset was spectacular, yet again. It's rare to get two great shows in a row, but last night delivered. It wasn't quite the uniform sea of clouds that we were treated to two evenings ago... somehow, the variation in the clouds made for even more compelling gazing. The clouds ebbed into the firs with a mystery you'd expect to see in an old crystal ball. A fitting reward for a year spent well.
