I like to walk about among the beautiful things that adorn the world; but private wealth I should decline, or any sort of personal possessions, because they would take away my liberty. George Santayana
It was another mild day on top. The high was 45. The low was 32. It was 38 and rainy at observation. The mountain received .28" of rain. Be prepared for some wet trails!
It's another day for the old Walasi-Yi spirits up top. There are few times I get wary of being alone up here. For some reason, it is always on a day like today. I believe it's an old buried remnant of primeval fear & vulnerability. I relish this primitive vigilance, as it means some part of me is responding to my environment in a way it wouldn't be in the 'real world'. Another blessing up top.
