Snow is BACK! I hope it stays for good! We had a high of 44 yesterday. It rained for the majority of the day. It dipped down to 18 last night and we got about an inch of snow. I heard some conflicting reports about whether the Gap road was open today. At best, it will be very icy coming up. The drive to the trailhead is statistically the most dangerous part of your hike, so proceed with caution!
To celebrate the new snow, I'm going on a long hike today. I had my first day without seeing a soul yesterday and finished my 3rd book of the season (David Witherspoon's 'Song of the Winter Wren').
Have a safe hike!
