It was a bit nasty out yesterday. The clouds were persistent up top. The high crept up to 41, but dropped all day after about 11am. There was .30" of rain. There will be a cold front passing through today. It was only 6 at observation. Be prepared for some bitter windchills!
I hiked down Rainbow for a few miles yesterday. It felt necessary to savor the green rhododendron, as I'm not sure I'll see too many without frost in the coming months. The transition from harsh, high 30's rain up top to increasingly more gentle conditions as I lost elevation was tender as always. It was a kiss of spring in the midst of winter.
