The day shaped up nicely. The sun came out and warmed us all. The snow is quickly retreating from the mountain side. Chris and some of the crew took off on a hike to Myrtle Point. They returned to camp reporting that it was absolutely gorgeous out there. I am sure there are still patches of ice on all of the trails, so I am still advising to be very careful on your way up the mountain. The temperatures are supposed to get even warmer over the next couple of days. I can't imagine this snow will stick around much longer. The high yesterday was 44 with a low of 27. I see dandelions in our near future, which makes me smile.
