Love and you shall be loved. All love is mathematically just, as much as the two sides of an algebraic equation. Emerson
It's a blustery morning up top! The high yesterday was a summery 54 degrees. It felt 70 in the sun! The overnight low got down to 35 degrees. It was 35 degrees and partly cloudy at 7am observation. The mountain received .72" of rain and with the warm temperatures, there is no more snow remaining in camp. I'd bet that a few trails still have some lingering icy spots, so be sure to pack some Microspikes and use caution in shady areas!

I spent a fantastic day moseying around camp yesterday. I was rich in time and beauty, leisure reigned supreme. I read on the porch of cabin 6 in the sunshine, then headed out to Myrtle Point, High Top and Cliff Tops as the sun was settling on the seemingly forever away horizon. There were a few ravens cruising around Cliff Tops at sunset, they were the only creatures that seemed to have more joy in being than I had yesterday...
