Safe to say the brutal cold of days past is behind, with this morning's observation of 42 degrees also serving as the high for the period. Before things warmed up though, the mountain received a glazing 0.2" of snow in the early morning before transitioning to rain. A meager 0.8" of liquid precip fel, throughout the day Friday. There is no snow remaining up top, but the icy places can linger. Current conditions are cloudy with a light mist.

Rugged green ridges below and a beautiful robin’s egg sky above forced a permanent smile onto my face. The moon stared down in broad daylight; even he knew that blue bird days were cherished and couldn’t be missed.
I galloped around the mountain for longer than I planned. Perfect skies have a way of changing one’s plans. The simplicity of it all was soothing to my soul. Breathing heavily up the climb, I simplified my thinking further...
“I believe we would be happier to have a personal revolution in our individual lives and go back to simpler living and more direct thinking. It is the simple things of life that make living worthwhile, the sweet fundamental things such as love and duty, work and rest, and living close to nature.”
