Our language has wisely sensed the two sides of being alone. It has created the word loneliness to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word solitude to express the glory of being alone. Paul Tillich
It was a beautiful day yesterday. The high crept up to 36 and it was clear all day. The low was 10 last night and it was up to 25 at observation. It sounds like we'll have a stretch of gorgeous days on the way. The snow is about 5 inches up top. It seems like it's been cold enough so that the snow wouldn't have melted, refroze and created too many icy hazards on the trails.
I spent yesterday taking care of chores around camp. I finished reading Robert Kull's 'Solitude'. He chooses to live on an island in Patagonia's coastal wilderness alone for a year. He was very focused on exploring his inner self without the distractions of a traditional lifestyle. I am grateful to have read it up here.
I also staked out a position to try to see Bobkitten at dusk. I sat patiently for a few hours near where his tracks have been and didn't get lucky. It looks like his tracks were pretty old, so maybe Bobkitten is more active at daylight than at dusk.
