“Pass then through this little space of time conformably to nature, and end thy journey in content, just as an olive falls off when it is ripe, blessing nature who produced it, and thanking the tree on which it grew.” Marcus Aurelius
It was a soggy day yesterday. There was a bit of a warm front - the low was 39, high was 47 and it was 41 at observation. There were 2 inches of rain in the last 24 hours. The temperature is supposed to drop tonight, so be on the lookout for ice again.
I'm looking forward to a big day hiking down Alum with my buddies. We're going to check out the NOC outfitter down in Gatlinburg. They'll drop me off on the other side of the mountain and I'll hike up Rainbow or Bullhead.
