Morning all! Well, it's a VERY windy day today on the mountain. Yesterday's blue skies have been swallowed up by a soupy mess of clouds and fog. The high yesterday reached 53 and the low was 33, currently it is 40 degrees, but the howling wind will make that feel much cooler, especially on the higher portions of the trails. Fortunately, the temperature didn't dip below freezing last night, so all of the ice that melted yesterday did not refreeze! Everyone pack rain gear today (let's be honest- pack rain gear anytime you hike) and nobody get blown off the trail on the way up!
