The high yesterday reached a mere 13 degrees. The overnight low dropped to 6 degrees and it was 9 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation, but there is still about 2 inches of snow up top.
I hiked a little ways down Rainbow Falls trail yesterday. The trail was in better shape than I was expecting. There is some ice that requires caution, but you can get by without using traction devices. There was enough snow on the ice to have some kind of purchase as you make your way up the mountain. Be sure to pack extra layers, it's very cold. It looks like it will be a gorgeous day, with temperatures increasing, some clear skies in the forecast and wind driven snow blanketing the trees. Happy hiking!
