Sunset over an undercast today.
While the past few days in the valley have been perfect for work in the yard without bundling up, returning to the summit today was a little different. With each observation I am forced to bundle up in my warm Eastern Mountain Sports jacket and cozy Vasque boots. Venturing outside for even a minimal amount of time, I feel the cold air’s chill. It is clear my blood has yet to thicken for the winter ahead. This is the time of year when I find myself layering everything I can get my hands on; however, by the end of the winter a short sleeve shirt under a jacket is all I need. It is incredible how our bodies can adjust to the variable conditions. Luckily, it is very warm inside.
