It is a great morning to be in the warm kitchen putting the final touches on the Mountain Thanksgiving feast. It was 4º when I awoke at 4:30 to the put the turkey in the oven. It is currently 3º. The high yesterday was 34º. Needless to say, it is cold at the top. It is days like this that I am so grateful my commute to work is from one room to another in the same building. There is frost on the trees but no snow on the ground. The trails will be icy, so please take your time coming up today. We will have some hot chocolate waiting for you when you reach the top. Happy Hiking.
