The views from the mountain have been great. We are starting to see that crisp fall air that brings great visibility. Today, however, is starting out on the cloudy side. I believe we might have some rain in the near future. The high yesterday was 60 with a low of 41. The top of the mountain has been fairly quiet lately. You can tell the kids are back in school.
I have been getting questions about what kind of weather to expect during this time of year. We are reaching that point where anything is possible. It is a little early to get snow, but in the mountains, we don't count out anything. I am telling people to come prepared. Bring plenty of layers so you can add clothing as needed. It is better to have layers to add if you get cold. With that being said, we could also get an indian summer. The best advice I can give is to come prepared for anything and you will be comfortable.
