It’s currently 33 degrees and cloudy up top. We had a high yesterday of 47 degrees, with an overnight low of 29. There has been an oscillation of the lodge being above the clouds and completely submerged in them.
Throughout the last couple days, life up top has been reminiscent of nearly forgotten fairytales, a different reality. The clouds, a thousand feet below, blanketed the world. Every time I stepped outside, I would give an audible, “Wow”. In addition to living above the clouds, I’ve had the privilege of swapping stories with winter caretakers from generations past. Their knowledge of the mountain and its history has left me enriched and grateful.
I hope you have a restful Sunday.
See you up the trail,
P.S. - With limited service up on the mountain, I’m not able to respond to many comment questions individually. If I see a repeating question, I’ll do my best to address it in this section of the blog.
P.S.S. – That being said, folks have been asking about what camera I’m using up here on the mountain. I’m currently shooting with a Sony A6300 with a Zeiss 16-70 lens. I have this lightweight setup mounted on a tripod so I’m able to capture crisp photos in the low light affiliated with dusk and dawn.
