" I believe there is a certain sense of awe and renewal for anyone who spends much time exposed to nature." - Bill Irwin.
I posted yesterday about the experiences I am looking forward to once the season is over. I wanted to add that I would not trade my experiences on the mountain for any of life's pleasures off the mountain. I consider myself blessed everyday that I wake up to the beauty this mountain has to offer. I may be ready for some rest and relaxation for a little while, but by the time spring rolls around, I am hungering for the mountain top.
It is starting out to be another amazing day up top. The high yesterday was 48 and the low was 25. I met a guest last night who was telling me he was somewhat addicted to logging on and finding out what the temperature was on the mountain. I told him I would look for a support group for him, but in the mean time, I will keep feeding his addiction by supplying the highs and lows.
I received an email from a couple of people who braved Bullhead. The hikers stated that there were numerous trees down along the trail. A lot of them were difficult to pass. One hiker stated they would describe the trail as impassible. I thought you would want to know this information when planning for future hikes.
Alum, Rainbow, and Trillium are all passable. The llamas made their first ascent in two and half weeks. They had no issues on Trillium. The snow has melted for the most part. There are not a lot of icy spots left that you can not navigate around.
