Its another misty morning in camp. Light drizzle paired with some surges of wind. The high yesterday was 40 degrees. The overnight low only dropped down to 35 degrees. It’s currently 39 degrees. We received 0.15” of precipitation dropping our snow depth to trace amounts around camp. Trails still have some snow up top which may require traction. Trails are sure to be soaked with recent rain and snow melt. Rain moves in tonight with clearing skies Tuesday. Much colder temperatures return Friday with lows in the teens. With the season getting shorter I’m wanting one more big snowfall before I head down the mountain. There is still plenty of winter remaining so we will see. Have a great day folks.
Clouds lingered over camp all day yesterday. There were no views of the valley below. No twinkling lights could be seen after darkness took over. Heavy fog coated the mossy forest as I admire my view filling up water at the spring. (Treat all water in the backcountry) The dense moisture floating through fir trees are enjoying a break from the recent snows and cold temps. Light rain falls against the wood shingles. A very relaxing sound in the loft. A good book in the loft is in order today. See you at the top folks!
