There is no more beautiful life than that of the carefree man; Lack of care is a truly painless evil. Sophocles
Top photo: Light peeking through the trees on Alum. Above: BOOMER BUDDY!!! He looks like he's had a good winter.
I was fortunate enough to hike up in the afternoon with a few friends. Since I do most of my hiking from 10-3, I usually miss the way the colours and light play with the mist. Fortune is always smiling upon me.
It was a mild day up on the mountain. The high was 36 up top. The low was 21. It was 27 and clear at observation. It looks like it'll be a beautiful, clear day up top. There's still quite a bit of water on the trails.
I got a few nice pictures of sunrise this morning. I'll be posting them tomorrow, as I already have a pile of good shots from Alum and sunset yesterday. LeConte is just too beautiful lately.
