Can anything be so elegant as to have few wants and to serve them one's self, so as to have somewhat left to give, instead of being always prompt to grab? It is more elegant to answer one's own needs, than to be richly served; inelegant perhaps it may look to-day, and to a few, but it is an elegance forever and to all. Emerson
It was gorgeous yesterday and looks to be much of the same today. The snow has just about melted off. The high was 46 and the low was 36. It was 42 and a bit hazy at observation.
I had a nice hike down Alum yesterday morning. I met Tim at the trailhead and he was kind enough to help me do some chores around town before hiking back up in the afternoon. Thanks again, Tim! I relaxed all afternoon and watched the meteor shower for as long as I could stay awake. It was a very calm evening on the mountain.
I have all my winter accessories and am just waiting on the snow. I received my skis yesterday (thanks Tom!) and had my buddies hike up my snowshoes this weekend. I was looking at my photos from my trip last MLK day and can't wait for it to begin! Safe hiking!
I feel like the Summer Caretaker. C'mon, winter!!!
