A chance of snow, mainly before midnight. Partly cloudy, with a low around 24. Windy, with a northwest wind 23 to 28 mph, with gusts as high as 55 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
Boreal tree cover. Well it certainly smells good. NOTHING like spruce and balsam in the sinusoid. But everytime I've been at Roan High Knob---say 50 times in my lifetime, I don't care if it is January or July, the winds kick arse and not in a polite like let me whisp across your cheek kinda way.
But that is why we keep going back isn't it? This is not a friendly place, winter only compounds the draconian, the caustic-our goal as always is to embrace the condition and smile.
That smile plus the best gear I can lay hands on.
Ask Neutron and Vortex about our hang there this summer. RHK really is a place possessed of an ill nature toward human comfort and iced with a sublime reminder that humans even with their pricy gear are mere fodder.
Hope you all have an exciting and safe trip!
