The high yesterday reached 38 degrees. The low was 33 degrees. It was 33 degrees and clear up top at 7am observation. The mountain received 1.17 inches of rain yesterday, starting at around 3pm up here. The snow is patchy up top, but there are still some sketchy sections on the trails. Please use caution!
I had a great early morning hike down & up Alum this morning. I started off with the stars and ended just as the sun was hitting the solar panel. After yesterday's near hypothermic conditions, the sun was quite a welcome sight on the upper slopes this morning. The change in conditions felt like a microcosm for the transition from winter to spring - a miserable joy in harsh, cold rain with periodic bursts of beauty followed by unexpectedly warm sun, absurdly fragrant smells and the gentle sounds of the world awakening. A hike to savor, rather than survive...
