It looks like a winter wonderland minus the snow on the ground. The trees are frosted over and shine like crystals in the sunlight. We don't have actual snow on the ground, but we got a few flurries yesterday. It was brisk 28 degrees up top. That did not seem to deter the day hikers. We were extremely busy up top. Let's just say we broke a record on the amount of hot chocolate we made yesterday. The low last night was 22. There seems to be even more frost draped over the trees this morning. I may not be ready for winter but it sure is a beautiful sight.
