There is something in staying close to men and woman and looking on them, and in the contact and odor of them, that pleases the soul well, All things please the soul, but these please the soul well. Whitman
It is another beautiful, snowy day up top. The high yesterday reached 35 degrees. The overnight low dipped down to 10 degrees. It is currently 10 degrees and lightly snowing. The mountain received 6 inches of new snow. We had some melt yesterday, so the total is at around a foot. It's sure to be a slog on the trails. It took me about time and a half to cover my usual distance heading uphill yesterday, for every step forward you seem to slide one step back. If you intend to get out, be prepared to move slow! I'd recommend wool socks, waterproof shoes, gaiters, snow pants and a positive attitude. Enjoy!!
