Climbed and skied witter today with the bro. Above the clouds, nary a breath of wind, steep snow, soft too. Started the day at 1:30am, left the house with a cup of coffee and the promise of a new day. Early hours walking the lonely road, the eastern glow awash in the sky above the clouds. Peaks looming overhead. A perfect day.

It was a tough day, 13+ miles 5,300 vertical, I started from the lower TH at 8,800 at 4:15am. The clouds were threatening all day, so I said some prayers asking for a cloud free Humboldt for the ascent. Wouldn't you know it the clouds stayed away and upon opening the summit register the first comment I read said "Praise God indeed". After that the clouds rolled in and it started snowing, I should have prayed for bluebird all day. I forgot the camera at home but wrote a little Humboldt TR anyways.
