Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe. Anatole France
My first sunrise of the season!!!
It's another beautiful, clear morning up top. The high yesterday reached 33 degrees. The low was 8 degrees, recorded yesterday morning. It was 30 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new snow and there is about 5 inches remaining up top. Alum is in very good shape. I hiked down and up yesterday, it is relatively packed down without being too slick. It looks like it's shaping up to be another beautiful day, so I'll see y'all on the trails!
Much thanks to my trail angels from Kentucky! I truly appreciate your generosity!
