We have the great fortune to live on a planet abounding with humans, plants, and animals; and I often marvel at the strange tasks evolution sets them. Of all the errands life seems to be running, of all the mysteries that enchant us, love is my favorite. Diane Ackerman
It's a beautiful, clear morning up top. The high yesterday was 31 degrees. The overnight low was 17 degrees. It was 31 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain still has about 4 inches of hard packed snow up top. Traction devices are highly recommended for anyone attempting to reach the summit. It's shaping up to be a beautiful, warm day up top. Get out and enjoy it!
