You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me the most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive. James Baldwin
It's a beautiful smoky mountain morning up top. The high yesterday reached 42 degrees. The overnight low was 25 degrees. It was 29 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new rain or snow and there is still no snow remaining up top. The trails are almost perfectly clear and there are only a few spots where you need to use caution on remaining ice. It seems as though my winter is over. I am taking off on Sunday and it is time to start packing up the cabin. Another season, another mountain range calls my name. If everyone can act like adults, the comments section will return tomorrow.
