Brrrrrrrr.....good frosty morning! This is Ruthie, back from two days off the mountain and I actually hiked up early this morning and was able to witness a frigid, but beautiful sunrise from the top of the Alum Cave Trail! It was 24 degrees when I arrived at the Lodge and I saw the first ice of the season on the flats of Alum (just frozen puddles, but I'll count it). It has warmed up a few degrees, now 28, and there isn't a cloud in the sky! Yesterday's high only reached 48 and the low overnight was 23....pack warm layers!
