So I have arrived in Bishop, California but this year the drive was not as forgiving as years past. The snow followed me all the way from Vancouver to Portland, and then began again at Mount Shasta and did not stop until the valley floor of Mono county. Snowtires just paid for themselves.
19 hours later, I arrived in the Pit to find myself still three inches deep in snow. The weather last night was bone chilling but warm weather is on the horizon. Climbed in the Happies today with no surprises. The old projects are still projects, the easier climbs still feel difficult. Hopefully tomorrow the Butters will be a little more forgiving
