It was a cloudy day on the summit yesterday. The high was 41 degrees. The low was 28. The mountain received .30" of rain and there are only about 2 patchy inches of snow on the ground left. It looks like it'll be a clear day today.
I haven't talked to another person since Sunday afternoon. Watching sunrise this morning, I was grateful to feel the power of the coming day. The particular way that the light came over the horizon has a consoling way of making me forget my human, all too human concerns and putting my self back into perspective. It's reassuring to know Nature is a mysterious and absolute force which affects us in ways that we can not categorize. She brings a solace and calm in desperate times that is beyond my capability to understand. I'm glad she is the way she is.
