Another bright sunny day here in the mountains and the forecast is for it to warm up significantly tomorrow as it rains cats and dogs. Not what the doctor ordered unfortunately though looks like we get some snow and things cool right back down for the weekend.

I'm not holding my breath on the snow front.

Still, as the photo attached indicates, it's great weather for a snow shoe trek.
