If we spend the evening with these friends, it is because we genuinely want to. Proust, on books
It's another gorgeous, cold morning up top. The high up top reached 27 degrees yesterday. The low was 13 degrees. It was 27 degrees and clear at 7am observation. There's only patchy snow left up top, but there's still a good amount of ice on the trails. Be careful if you intend to summit! It looks like we'll have another gorgeous day, with a chance of flurries in the evening. This also means that there is a high chance of a smiling caretaker.

Do you ever get that feeling when you're really immersed and giddy with emotion that you're going to remember it for a good, long time? It's a peculiar kind of self-awareness, bouncing down the trail and feeling the sun warm your rosy cheeks, singing silly tunes, and getting the realization that you won't just be enjoying this motion, these colours, these rocks, this crispy air right now, but also when you're drained, feeling claustrophobic, having a dark night of the soul, you can draw upon the sweet succor of memory and drown in the past. It's a gift to be in the business of making memories.
