It’s currently 40 degrees and clear, with an excellent view above the clouds. Yesterday’s high was 43 degrees, with an overnight low of 35.
The warmer temperatures have melted most of the snow leaving the trails wet and icy. We received 0.2” of precipitation.
Walking to sunrise, I slushed through a sloppy wet world. The morning glow revealed the cotton tufts below. Focused on the ice-covered path ahead, I hiked up to Apollo Overlook. The beauty of the rising sun set the tone for the day… set the tone for a beautiful week. Happy, I continued to wander around the mountain.
Back in the kitchen, I warmed water for tea. The apricot almond bread and blueberry muffins from the day before stood proudly atop the stove. Having already devoured much of both, I wished I had taken a photo. “Good”, I thought. I’ll have an excuse to make them again.
P.S. – Below is picture of Friday’s baking excursion. Garlic herb loaves sit above. Honey oatmeal to the left, and Banana Nut to the right.
