But all joy wants eternity— Wants deep, wants deep eternity. Nietzsche
It's a blustery morning up top. The high yesterday reached 43 degrees. The overnight low was 40 degrees. It was 42 degrees and mostly cloudy at 7am observation. The mountain received 1.84 inches of rain yesterday, storming through much of the afternoon and evening. There were some pretty high winds, as well. There is no more snow up top and very little remaining on the trails. The trails are pretty saturated, so expect wet feet if you plan to hike up today!

I will be taking the next few days off the mountain. The blog will return on the 27th. Enjoy the holiday season!
