It is a seriously grey day up top! The high yesterday reached 42 degrees. The overnight low got down to 37 degrees. It was 42 degrees and mostly cloudy (like, need a headlamp to get from my cabin to the kitchen! cloudy!) at 7am observation. The mountain received .35" of liquid precipitation, mostly coming overnight. It's due to be a grey, rainy day - so unique and characteristic of the park. Don't let some clouds keep you in the valley! These are some of the best days to experience this national treasure - no crowds, eerieness and mystery around every corner. Is that a tree trunk or a bear? You decide.
Much thanks to Bill and Kathy for dropping off some much appreciated home baked cookies! They were delightful after my long hike yesterday! Also, best of luck to all my mountain loving brothers and sisters running the North Face Endurance Challenge out in SF today! Your dedication is a constant source of inspiration!
