Our kinship with Earth must be maintained; otherwise, we will find ourselves trapped in the center of our own paved-over souls with no way out. Terry Tempest Williams
Morning y'all, It's another gorgeous morning up top! The sleet is flying sideways, the winds are whipping. It's been a while since we've had some good, chaotic dyin' weather. The mountain received a light dusting of snow and everything has been made anew. The high yesterday reached 39 degrees. The low was 25 degrees. It was 29 degrees and sleeting at 7am observation. The trails should be pretty icy today, so I'd be sure to pack along some Microspikes if you intend to summit. Keep an eye on the Park Service's twitter feed for the latest news on road conditions. Enjoy the day!
