It's going to be a long hard climb, but I think Mr. Snail is going to make it. He seemed pretty determined. I may have thrown him off a little when I picked him up and moved him out of harms way. I hope that doesn't cause him a major delay. He seems to be enjoying the morning just like everyone else. The sky is blue and the temperatures are rising. The high yesterday was 60º with a low somewhere in the mid 40's. The low showed the 24 hour low which would have been after observance yesterday morning. It was reading 32º, but it was not that cold last night. I am happy to have a good day to leave the mountain. I will be heading off the rock for a week. Nathan is going to be around to keep you entertained. I know you all are looking forward to his colorful spin on mountain life. I hope you all have a great weekend. See you next week.
