It’s currently 22 degrees and amidst the clouds. Yesterday’s high was 33, with an overnight low of 20. The trails up top have plenty of ice and the winds have started picking up.
I woke from a deep comfortable sleep. While preparing for the day, I made a mental note to keep sipping peppermint tea with honey before bed.
Wandering up the trail, I stared thoughtlessly at the blue-jean colored landscape. When I arrived at Myrtle Point, the artist had already begun painting his morning masterpiece. I found a seat and watched the show.
I gave a standing ovation. The artist continued to paint…
...I sat back down, awestruck.
