Now I understand why the old poets of China went so far and high into the mountains, then crept into the pale mist. Mary Oliver
Morning y'all, It's a blustery, cloudy morning up top. The high yesterday reached 42 degrees. The overnight low was 37 degrees. It was 37 degrees and cloudy at 7am observation. The mountain received .04" inches of rain and there is no snow up top. There is no ice remaining on the trails. It's sure to be a soggy, quiet day - get out and enjoy it!
I had a great day of relaxation and recovery hanging around the cabin yesterday. Grace and I did some reading, ate some delicious cast iron meals and enjoyed the sound of the world swirling to the wind rhythms yesterday evening. It was the kind of day that makes the mountain feel like an early retirement.
