We had a high of 44 yesterday. It felt even warmer with the radiant sun. The overnight low was 22 and it was 29 degrees and clear this morning at weather observation. There is still an inch of snow on the ground. We heard a few folks talking about icy sections on the trails, so be sure to take your time on the way up.
Yesterday Chrissy & I had an afternoon of exploring. We measured the levels in the water tank, then hiked out to Myrtle Point. After that, we went to Cliff Tops. Then we went down to the Trillium Gap trail to check out the ice walls. I'm really enjoying getting to know my new backyard. There's something new to see every day.
I am looking forward to Poker Night!
