I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion.
We had another mild day yesterday. It is starting to feel like winter in the morning again. The high was 35. It was 27 and clear at observation. The overnight low was 17.
I went for a run down Alum yesterday and saw about 15 day hikers. Unfortunately, the beauty of my run was overshadowed by disgust. I picked up 5 water bottles along they way. As one of the day hikers commented, some people just don't deserve beauty. Thanks to everyone who isn't a lazy slob and can respect their surroundings. PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT.
