It's another beautiful, snowy morning up top. The high yesterday reached 8 degrees. The overnight low was negative 7 degrees. It was 8 degrees and cloudy at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation yesterday and the snowfall is 13 inches deep. The trails have yet to be packed down, so I'd definitely recommend heavy winter gear and Microspikes if you intend to reach the summit. As of this posting, US 441 is closed. The Park Service is working hard to get all the icy area roads open! Get out and enjoy the park in all it's wintry glory!
I spent the majority of the day yesterday relaxing in my cabin, reading, writing and just lazing the day away. The only thing that could have made the afternoon better would have been Bearcat purring on my chest! I will be hiking down today, doing some laundry in town then coming back up tomorrow afternoon. The blog will return on Saturday. Enjoy the wintry weather!
