see the pyramids along the Nile/ watch the sunrise on a tropic isle
We had another mild night. It only got down to 36 yesterday. The high was 39 and it was 38 and socked in at Observation. The snow finally melted up top, but there may still be some ice on the trail. I have a feeling I'm not going to see too many folks today. We're supposed to get some nasty rain tomorrow, so be prepared for some weather.
I had a productive 'inside' day yesterday. I read for the majority of the day. I perfected my corn bread and hot cocoa. I was able to do my laundry for the first time since I got up here and took a sponge bath. I feel like I could go to a dinner party or something.
A quick thanks to the folks from Lexington, KY who were staying up at the shelter last night. They were kind enough to pick me up some fresh blueberries and even looked for a Sunday NYT! I appreciate the effort, guys. I'm consistently blown away by how hospitable everyone down South has been. Have a safe hike, everyone!
