It's a beautiful, blustery fog filled morning up top. The high yesterday reached 40 degrees. The overnight low was 17 degrees. It was 18 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation. There are still 2 inches of snow remaining up top. It is very, very slick out here. I fell harder than I've ever fallen up here because I was too lazy to use my spikes to walk across camp. Learn from my mistake! Be careful if you intend to get up high!
The mountain is in a shroud today. We've had some abundant sunshine the past few days and it was marvelous - but the variety of weather up here is as beautiful as another sunny day. It is always in flux, forever in motion. An eerie yellow grey glow is lighting up the kitchen right now, setting an ominous tone for a quiet cabin day. The clouds lend an air of mystery to the usual sights around camp; a cabin hides here and a tree emerges there. The birds seem more active on these days, unafraid to give away their position with their morning songs. Get out and enjoy the mystery!
ps: Happy Birthday LO!!! Love you so much!!!
