It's a stunning morning up top. It's a chilly day up top, be prepared for full on winter conditions if you intend to summit! The high yesterday reached 43 degrees. The low dipped down to 2 degrees. It is currently 3 degrees and lightly snowing up top. The mountain received 1.17 inches of liquid precipitation during the day, before it started snowing overnight. There's about an inch of fresh, gorgeous powder and 3 inches total. I would bet that the trails will be rather nasty. It was melting a lot yesterday, so it must have refrozen in all sorts of tricky, unpredictable ways.
The mountain is coated in wintry newness and the silence beckons. I'll be out exploring, trying to capture images that will hint at the glory up top. It's a shadow of an imitation, but I hope it will help to convey some of the majesty. We are blessed vessels for beauty and opportunity.
