Till rising and gliding out I wander'd off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars. Whitman
It's another beautiful, snowy day up top. The fresh snow is dazzling in the early morning light. The high yesterday reached 20 degrees. The low was negative 1 degree. It was 3 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received one inch of new snow, bringing the total up top to 3 inches. The trails are in good shape, as the powder is fresh and still has decent traction. Enjoy the trails!
Last night will stand out when I think back on this season. I needed to clear my head. There is only so much consolation the written word can offer. Everything was calm. The full moon was a floodlight amplified by the white carpet, her brother stars shone diamond like on the velvety sky. The wind swirled like dark sea, coming in waves. The trees towered above like giant dreamcatchers. My fellow nightcreatures padded softly through the night. Pure grace.
