...you know I'll park my truck in New Mexico desert for weeks at a time, with supply of beans, cabbage and wine, and Buddha books and my everpresent by-my-side Proust, dig, and really enjoy freedom and life. Kerouac
It's a beautiful, calm morning up top. The high yesterday reached 42 degrees. The overnight low was 30 degrees. It was 32 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received .63" of rain yesterday during some consistent afternoon and evening showers. There is little snow remaining up top, but be aware that the trails still have some really slick sections. I'd recommend some sort of traction devices if you want to make it up or down in one piece.

Is there any finer feeling than drifting to sleep with silence and stars? I give thanks every evening for this gift. The calm, the serenity, the natural ease of it all... if that doesn't get into your blood and bones, I don't know what does. Everything in it's right place. Cultivate stillness and you are bound to be forever rich.
