At a very early age I looked forward to all that, to the seasons turning and nature taking its course. And while I didn't put such words to it at the time, I was very aware that I was a part of nature - that I sprang from the soil, and as long as I followed the natural order of things, I'd be okay.

It's a gorgeous, SNOWY morning up top! The high yesterday reached 22 degrees. The overnight low was 5 degrees. It was 9 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received a trace of snow, just enough to cover up most of the bare ground. I am sure that there is plenty of black ice below the snow, so be careful! I would recommend some sort of light traction unless you like the idea of slipping around a frozen mountain. Be sure to bring some warm layers and an extra pair of socks, it's quite chilly up top!
