Hello again from a cold and dreary mountain top today. Yesterday's high reached 50 and the overnight low fell back to 28, but the temperature seems to be falling as the morning progresses, freezing the mist on the trees and onto the ground as well. So be cautious while making the ascent today! Yesterday's weather stayed fairly mild until right after sunset when a long line of thunderstorms started making their way across the valley and up to us. In fact, the crew had quite the lightning show while we were in the kitchen dyeing Easter eggs after dinner! We received 1.35" of rain overnight and easily 60-70 mph winds rocked the mountain, so be careful of branches, slippery rocks, and refreezing ice if you are out hiking today!
The crew dyed eggs while a storm howled outside last night.
