One Week

On Saturday, April 23rd, our lovely Vermont winter returned. It is one week before I leave for my trip and it is cold, raw and snowing - AGAIN. This year brings a late spring to Vermont - last year we had an early spring. In fact this time last year we were mowing the grass! Go figure. Today, Sunday, April 24th it did a 180 - the sun was shining much of the day and the temperature warmed to a spring-like 60 degrees. I spent Saturday indoors prepping gear, lists and printing route descriptions for climbing areas I hope to check out. Today, the weather allowed me to pop the top and start cleaning and packing the van. It's hard to believe I will be pulling away from here and heading west in exactly one week. I am excited and anxious - leaving here will indeed be bittersweet.
