You can’t know it, but you can be it, at ease in your own life. Lao Tsu
It is a seriously blustery morning up top. The high yesterday reached 42 degrees. The low was 29 degrees. It was 42 degrees and drizzling at 7am observation. The mountain received .20 inches of rain yesterday, starting at around 7pm. There is still some treacherous ice in shady areas of the trails, particularly on Alum and the Boulevard. It's sure to be a quiet day on the trails, enjoy the characteristic 'smoke' today!
Today is a perfect day for meandering. The shifting winds and never static fog create an air of mystery and dark promise.
