O lands, would you be freer than all that has ever been before? If you would be freer than all that has been before, come listen to me. Fear grace, elegance, civilization, delicatesse, Fear the mellow sweet, the sucking of honey-juice, Beware the advancing moral ripening of Nature, Beware what precedes the decay of the ruggedness of states and men. Whitman
It's a beautiful, misty afternoon up top. The high yesterday reached 53 degrees. The overnight low was 41 degrees. It was 49 degrees and cloudy at 7am observation. The mountain received 2.32 inches of rain yesterday. It's sure to be a wet, misty hike, get out and enjoy it!
