How great was its energy, how humble its effort. Let us hope it will always be like this, each of us going on in our inexplicable ways building the universe. Mary Oliver
It's yet another beautiful morning up top! The high yesterday reached 43 degrees and the low was 32 degrees. It was 32 degrees and the mountain is clear above the valley clouds! The mountain received no new precipitation and there is still about an inch of snow left up top. The trails are pretty slick, so be sure to pack traction devices if you're hoping to make it above Alum Cave. Enjoy the wintry bliss!

Much thanks to all the kind souls who gave me fresh fruit, dark coffee and good cheer yesterday! It is much appreciated!
Much thanks to guest photographer, Ann Little!
