It's a beautiful, blustery morning up top. The high yesterday reached 34 degrees. The low was 6 degrees, recorded shortly after observation yesterday morning. It was 34 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation, but there is still about 7 inches of snowfall up top. As of this posting, Highway 441 is closed. Check the Park Service's twitter feed for updated road status. Enjoy the snow world!
Yesterday was a fantastic day to watch the world unfold. It was still and bluebird through early afternoon. The trees were a wonder to gaze upon, stark white against a deep blue backdrop. After days in single digits, the sun was out in full force, charging solar panels and warming backs. As the day progressed, a few clouds emerged and the wind went from a gentle whisper to a raucous howl. Sunset was perfect, illuminating the clouds with all shades of orange, red and pink. A bright moon worked with the deep snowpack to create a dim ethereal night. Every moment different, every difference new.

Good morning! Awesome pics! Going to be in the area this weekend and hoping to do a hike with some snow to trek thru. JP, do you think there will still be a good bit of snow on the trail come Saturday morning/midday? Thanks!
