Learning how to think really means learning how to exercise some control over how and what you think. It means being conscious and aware enough to choose what you pay attention to and to choose how you construct meaning from experience. David Foster Wallace
It's a beautiful, clear morning up top. The high yesterday reached 41 degrees. The overnight low was 19 degrees. It was 23 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation yesterday and the snowpack is down to about 9 inches total. The trails are getting packed down and a little bit slick. I'd recommend carrying some sort of traction devices to ensure that you don't hurt yourself. It should be another beautiful day, enjoy!
Cliff Tops was totally exhilarating yesterday evening. There were serious clouds out towards the west and the winds were relentlessly fierce. I watched the sun emerge from time to time through layers of storm clouds, creating a grey and red effect when it's mood saw fit. It felt a bit like being on the sea shore, a dense energy swirling around constantly reminding you of just how weak and fleshy you are in the midst of nature's raw powers.
