Good morning folks,
Its a chilly start to the morning. Calm winds and the stillness returns on the mountain. The high yesterday reached 26 degrees. The overnight low dipped down to 9 degrees. It’s currently 9 degrees. No precipitation was recorded. No new snow was recorded. Snow depth is 8”. Trails are still in good shape. Hiked down to Rainbow falls yesterday. Crampons will be needed. That’s if the roads open….It’s been very quite and peaceful with no hikers on the mountain. It’s a good time for the mountain to rest from all the activity during the summer. Everything needs to rest! Sun returns today.
Have a great start to the weekend folks.
What a difference in 1,000 feet can have on the mountain. Dropping down in elevation trees and the trail had a fresh layer of snow. Much colder near Rainbow falls than the top of the mountain. It was a great day to be out hiking. Light flurries floated through the air. I stopped and admired my surrounding. Water droplets cling to tips of the firs. I pushed on to the top. Legs were feeling the hike once back in camp. Enjoyed a great supper. Steak, baked potatoes, salad, asparagus and brussels. Thanks for the Italian dressing Greg! Your the man.
