I am a wanderer and mountain-climber, said he to his heart, I love not the plains, and it seemeth I cannot long sit still. And whatever may still overtake me as fate and experience—a wandering will be therein, and a mountain-climbing: in the end one experienceth only oneself.
It was yet another bizarrely warm day yesterday. The high was 52. The low was 36. It was 38 and blustery at observation. It looks like there's a chance of afternoon showers today, so be ready for some rain.
I had a nice hike out to the Jumpoff yesterday. I'd never been there before and it is definitely one of the most well named spots in the park. Thanks for the recommendation, Bill! I relaxed after I got back around 4 and did some reading.
I'm looking forward to focusing on some of my indoor activities as the rain moves in these next few days. I'm going to be doing a few chores around camp, reading and starting my first whittling project. Safe hiking everyone!
