A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone. Henry David Thoreau
It was one of the most beautiful days I've ever seen yesterday. The high was only 28, but it was still as could be and the snow always seems to make the cold less bitter. The overnight low was 14. It was 18 and clear at observation.
I hiked down to Rainbow Falls yesterday. After about a mile, I descended below the clouds. It was misty and gray at the Falls. When I came back up, it was clear and the clouds still hadn't burnt off. I've never seen inversion last this long. It made for a spectacular sunset.
Thanks to my friends for hiking me up all sorts of goodies & my early Christmas gifts. It's been great seeing familiar faces. Thanks for the new vest, Mom!
I am planning on hiking out to Charlie's Bunion this morning. Hope everyone enjoys the glorious weather! Safe hiking!
Good luck topping this one, universe.
