Yesterday was a beautiful day with clear blue skies and the sun warming things up. Still, some very good ice-monster sights still to be seen higher up on the mountain thanks to the snow we got last week.

This morning the sun is out again, it's nice and clear - just some cloud - and no wind that I can feel.

Another great morning, bonus being that it is much quieter than the weekend.

More of the same with warmer still temperatures through Wednesday, while we are being threatened by rain on Thursday.
