It was time once again for our Halloween pumpkin carving contest. Every year the crew each takes a pumpkin and gets creative. The guests vote on the best one and the winner gets to sleep in one morning. I thought I would share the pumpkins with you.
And the winner is......
In case you are wondering who his pumpkin is supposed to be, I will tell you. Frank Herbert, the author of Dune.
I would say it looks like Alex or Santa. You can use your imagination. Alex was up for the weekend. He is going to be the winter caretaker this winter. I told him he could sleep in this winter after he calls in the weather and writes his blog entry. Yesterday was a great day to be on the mountain. It was warm in some spots. The high was 55 with a low of 34.
