It is bound to be another beautiful day up top. The high yesterday was 53 degrees, the overnight low was 29 degrees and it was 36 degrees at observation. It's probably a bit too early for me to be worried about what this means for my winter snowfall, but it did feel disturbingly warm up here. I haven't gotten out to explore the other trails, but Alum is in fine condition. There's very little ice left after yesterday's abundant sunshine.
I had a wonderful hike down Alum yesterday afternoon with our backroom braintrust member Ron. Thanks for everything, Ron! Especially the nifty new radio antennae! I came up Alum at around 5pm and caught some of the sunset's afterglow at Inspiration Point and Alum Cave, it was better than a fine wine. I'll be hanging around camp today anticipating some big crowds. Enjoy the day!
