I love the way the rhododendrons hang over your head in the ice.
It is officially cold. We had a low of 17 last night. It only crept up to 22 yesterday. It was 20 and cloudy at observation this morning. We got another 1.2" of snow, bringing us to a total of about 2 inches. It sounds like it will be partly sunny today, but still bitte
I hiked out the Boulevard trail yesterday. It was already dangerous negotiating the Slide. I followed bobkitten tracks for the first half of the hike. I'm putting it out there - all I want for Christmas is a bobkitten sighting!
I haven't seen another person in two days. This is a new experience! I finished David Brill's 'As Far as the Eye Can See' yesterday. New hike and new book today!
