Friday, 05/14/10 Green Mountain

Hiked Green via Gregory/Ranger this morning with Allison and Sierra.  The trail is melted out to the cabin, but there is still plenty of coverage above, including several fresh inches of snow that fell overnight on the upper ~1/3 of the mountain.  It was cloudy/foggy most of the time on the upper mountain and I was a bit chilled.  It seemed as though it was pouring ran underneath the trees (most of the time), but it was just the fresh snow melting off.  At the 4-way, the sun teased for a moment, then on the summit, we basked in it's full warmth for nearly half an hour before starting back down into the murk.  Sunny and warm by the finish of course.  Super slick, but very fun.  I am really enjoying the snow, especially since I know it will be gone by Sunday.
