Happy Summer Solstice

I read yesterday that the land above 12,000 feet has 45 growing days in an entire year. Today, June 21, the summer solstice, was not one of them. In fact, at 14,270 feet above sea level on the summit of Grey's Peak, it was a powder day. Thank you Gulf of Alaska and arctic cold front that dropped a foot of snow up high. What was this summer solstice about? A beautiful place, a familiar mountain from my past and present life, my best friend and wife. And of course snow and skiing. What more could you ask for? Except for this little fact: on a intergalactic level, on a universal level, the trend towards winter begins tomorrow.
