Good afternoon! Well, we are still afloat on the mountain, but it feels like we might get blown away before the day is out. There has been rain on and off all day with more to come this evening and strong, gusting wind. Yesterday's high was 57 and the low overnight was 47. It's chilly right now at 50 degrees. Everyone hiking today take caution when crossing streams as they will be very rapid. Also be aware of fallen branches and slippery trail conditions. I would personally suggest against taking Rainbow Falls trail up either today or tomorrow based on the amount of rain that has fallen and forecast to fall tonight. Be safe everyone!
Hello down there! #Brian here with a bit of weather. It is going to rain. Please do not take Rainbow Falls Trail tomorrow. Thanks
Good news...we've got rain! And lots of it. Over the last two days we have received over 2" of steady rainfall, so much yesterday that my internet connection would not connect. Today is shaping up to be much like the past few, cool and rainy. Yesterday's high was only 54 and the low overnight was 46. Right now it is raining and 52 degrees. Y'all stay warm and dry out there!
Hello again. Today is still making up its mind about what kind of weather we are having...we woke up in an inversion and now the clouds have rolled in overhead as well. But it is a very comfortable 58 degrees outside. Yesterday's high was 63 and the low overnight was 47. We received 1.73" of steady rainfall all throughout the day and into the early evening. Y'all have a great afternoon!
Good afternoon! Another foggy day up on the mountain top. Yesterday we received .05" of rain. The high was 63 and the low overnight was 46. Right now it is cloudy and misty and the temperature has settled in around 60 degrees. Happy hiking!
Good morning! We are in the midst of a third cloudy day in a row. Yesterday started out clear, but quickly became overcast and the temperature never rose above 60 degrees. Overnight, the low fell to 48 and even though it felt dreary all day, we received no rain. Currently their is a soft mist just floating in the the air and it is 60 degrees.
Hello and welcome back to the blog! I am assuming that everyone has ill-will and negativity out of their systems, so I will continue with my regularly scheduled blogging. It has been a cool and rainy (finally!) few days on the mountain, the past 2 days culminating in 1.8" of rainfall collectively. Yesterday's high was only 53 and the overnight low was 48, it has been teetering between sun and clouds today, settling in at around 58 degrees and so far any rain has stayed cloud-side. Happy hiking and happy fall!
Well, well, well...I have to say, I am rather disappointed in the level of maturity and restraint shown on this blog in the comments section. This is not the place for anyone's political soapbox rantings, this is a blog about a lodge in the middle of the woods. It is very cut and dry, if the government shuts down, the lodge shuts down. All comments outside of these facts are irrelevant and belong on someone else's ill-informed-pseudo-political-opinion forum. And now, since it seems that some of you simply cannot fight the impulse to stir the pot with unnecessary, back-handed, and frankly self-indulgent commentary, I will deliver on my promise of a rock. Congratulations that once again only 1% of a people have really made a mess of something great for everyone else. How is that for a political shut down?
Yesterday's high was 65 and the low was 48. We received .4"of rain overnight. Currently it is 50 and raining lightly.
Good morning to everyone! This is Ruthie, back from days off the mountain. It's cloudy here and a a bit on the chilly side, only 50 degrees at the moment. Yesterday's high was 64 and the low overnight was 43 and we have yet to receive even a drop of rain...although we are foretasted to have a wet weekend, so maybe then! Happy hiking, internet!
Hello down there! #Brian here again. Here is another video for y'all to feast your eyes on. Notice goofy Matthew sitting on the rail. #videobomb #IsaidGetDownFromThere The weather lately has been so indecisive. Do something already! We need rain!!! It is currently 56 degrees and boring. Yesterday's high reached 60 and the low dropped to 46. #stillNoRain
