    Very good day! thanks to Darcy for organizing, to Terry for helping him & keeping an eye on me, to Jesse for driving & use of his poles and to all of you for being patient with me. I realize my ability to 'climb' needs work so I will try lower level hikes. I trust you know that you have paid it forward & when you need it, someone will be patient with you too!

    The weather looks like it might be ok for tomorrow. Only a 40% chance of showers and a forecasted 1 mm of rain. Please be prepared with rain gear. The top of the mountain is not expected to get above 5 deg C. Warmer on the approach.
