It's another beautiful, clear day up top. The high yesterday reached 29 degrees. The overnight low was 12 degrees. It was 27 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation and there is still about 2 inches of snow remaining up top. The forecast is calling for some more snow throughout the day today, but for now it is beautiful out. The trails are sure to be a bit slick, I would definitely recommend traction devices for the trickier sections. Get out and enjoy this beautiful day!
I spent yesterday enjoying one of my last long cabin days of the season. I hike down in a week and I'll be trying to fit in some big runs before I take off, so it was the perfect day to rest up and enjoy the quietude. I read all day, scribbled a little and just savored the way my cabin seems to fit me like a hermit crabs' hermit crabshell. I wish I could take it with me. I can't get too nostalgic, I am too excited for all that is to come. Carter Notch is another of my blessed places and my hiking exploits this summer will satisfy my wanderlust (or fuel it further like any other addiction?) for some time... I will be posting a link to my new Instagram account sometime next week so that blog readers can keep track of Billy and I on our journey.
