Walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things. It is the one way of freedom. If you go to a place on anything but your own feet you are taken there too fast, and miss a thousand delicate joys that were waiting for you by the wayside. Elizabeth von Arnim

It's another beautiful, clear day up top. The high yesterday reached 32 degrees. The overnight low was 16 degrees, recorded early yesterday morning. It was 27 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation, but there is still patchy snow remaining up top. The ice is a little sketchy on Alum and Boulevard. There are still nasty slick spots and some of them are now hiding underneath a thin layer of snow. Be careful if you intend to reach the summit! The colours are outstanding right now, get out and enjoy the day!
