What business have I in the woods, if I am thinking of something out of the woods? Thoreau
It's another beautiful, clear day up top. The high yesterday reached 50 degrees (!!!). The overnight low was 34 degrees. It was 42 degrees and clear as could be at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation and there is still about a 1/2 inch of snow remaining up top. There are still quite a few tricky sections on Alum, so be sure to bring some sort of traction device if you intend to summit safely. Enjoy the day folks!
