Again Low to High

A long look to the southwest
Did an early, moderately long hike west of the mountain this morning and, thankfully, I was properly dressed for the chilly conditions.  It was in the high 40s when I started off, and the brisk wind made it feel colder than that.

Ran into my friend Jimmy on the inbound leg, and he and I talked for about fifteen minutes or so before I had to cut our conversation short; I had to get back home, finish packing and do a few other things in prepartion for our trip to the high county, where Dr. K and I am now.

Very brisk up here:  high of 50F with a predicted low of 25F  I've already turned on the pumphouse heater to ward off the cold.
