On the 21st at 10:30 PM Mountain Time, or 22:30, or 5:30 AM UTC (December 22nd, officially), it will be the solstice. Get out there and enjoy it. ;)
Just in time, too, as I'm sick and tired of winter. What? You say there are 3 more months of it? Aaawwww!
Nothing more enjoyable than a good hike out of town.
