Good Afternoon. Nathan has been trying all afternoon to log in to post, but apparently the weather is causing a problem with getting connected, so he asked that the office post. The high was 55, low 47. It started raining about 7:00 this morning. It is very windy so watch for fallen trees if you will be hiking tomorrow. Temps are dropping today so it will be a cold start hiking in the morning.
Those hiking tomorrow on Grotto Falls/Trillium Gap trail will be getting a (hopefully) pleasant surprise as the llamas will be packing. They are off schedule this week due to a few llamas eating some purple mint which is toxic to them and other animals. It has a short growing span and with the mild winter is more abundant than normal. Chrissy and Alan learned something new this week about llamas and what they shouldn't eat. The llamas are all fine now and should be back on schedule Monday.
