I have too much weakness of character to live the normal life like everybody else... like social life, and regular job, etc. This is Tao. Kerouac
It's another glorious morning up top. The high yesterday reached 21 degrees and the overnight low was 13 degrees. It was 14 degrees and clear up top, with an inversion cap over the valley below. The mountain received no new snow, but the low daytime temperatures did not melt anything. There is still about 2 inches of snow remaining up top. The trails are sure to be a bit slick, so be careful out there!

I spent yesterday as a witness.
Sun setting at Cliff Tops.
It is an imprecise calculation, but I believe that I saw and felt more vividly up here yesterday than... an army of poets would have seen and felt in a typical city in a year. No offense to poets, or cities. I just believe there is that much more unfiltered TRUTH up here.
Yes, yes, forever.
I am blessed.
A big heartfelt thank you to my friend JY for helping me out yesterday. It is greatly appreciated! Wishing you the best of luck on Aconcagua on January 4th!
