The stillness, solitude, wildness of nature is a kind of thoroghwort or boneset, to my intellect. This is what I go out to seek. It is as if I always met in those places some grand, serene, immortal, infinitely encouraging though invisible, companion, and walked with him. Thoreau
It's a beautiful, blustery morning up top. The high yesterday reached 36 degrees. The overnight low was 18 degrees. It was 34 degrees and mostly cloudy at 7am observation. There is about 8 inches of snow remaining. There has been plenty of melt on the mountain and the trails are sure to be sloppy. Get out and enjoy the day!
