Precipitation

According to the latest web weather forecast, there are a few more fronts on their way. Heavy rain in the lowlands and snow up high. Lots of snow. The Sappho area, not far from Forks, has been hit with more than a foot of rain in the past week. The incoming system is going to be colder than the one we just saw move through, meaning the snow level is falling steadily. The prediction is that there will be accumulations as low as 2,000 feet during the morning hours, before the rising temperatures push the freezing level back up around 4,000 feet later in the day.
I’ve been looking at that Anderson Pass trip again, trying to get an idea about where the snow level will intersect the trail, thinking about how many miles I would need to travel over trackless cover. Thinking about what solitude might feel like.
