Fun, thrilling drive up. Started driving through storm clouds pretty quickly, bringing visibility to just a few feet in front of me. Road wet but was rain down below and not slippery.

Fun driving up and, because of being so high up and winding around the mountain, the radio station I was tuned into kept changing as I drove, sometimes being two radio stations at the same time. It would go from modern rock to country to an 80s station. I changed it to try to fix it, picked a classical station and a Christian station kept jumping in and out.

Road was a little rougher condition beyond the summit lake, but still drivable. I guess all of the snow and stuff has taken a toll on this part of the road this year. At the top it was sleeting with a little snow thrown in. I bundled myself up and took off running to the top. Thankfully there was a break for a few minutes when I reached the top. Also did some exploring around the observatory and Crest House before the weather started up again.
