One of the glorious things about a snow storm is that they are frequently followed by a day of intense sun. In this case no warmth, but definitely sun.
The snowfall added around an inch and a half around the Lodge.
The conditions as of 4:41 p.m. were:
26.4 degrees F and steady;
54% humidity and steady;
29.06" of Hg pressure and rising;
occasional gusts of wind up to 3.5 MPH;
USFS Fire Danger Rating of NONE;
sun setting in a mostly clear sky.
While there are some tracks from hikers and dogs, it is also interesting to see the tracks of squirrels, mice, voles, and birds in the fresh snows. You can't help but be a tracker as you try to interpret what on earth was going on in the glen.
