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!

Hello and good morning from another foggy, chilly day! Yesterday's high only reached 60 and the low overnight was 52 and we finally received .35"of rain yesterday! It looks like we are in for more today as well. It is certainly cool, only 54 degrees, and there is a thick layer of clouds that has settled into camp...this is optimal tea and knitting weather on the mountain!

Well, last night ended our three-day rainbow streak, but we had a magnificent sunset in its place. Yesterday's high was 61 and the low overnight was 48. Right now it is sunny but chilly, only 55, but there are clouds moving in and it is hard to say for sure what the weather will do today. I hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend!

Unbelievable! Three evenings in row we have been given beautiful, full, double rainbows. That has got to mean something amazing! Yesterday's high was 67 and the low over night was 48, again afternoon showers produced rain that was not enough to measure, but perfect for refracting light right around dinner time. Right now it is cool, only 54, and cloudy. Alum is open for the Labor Day holiday and we are already very busy! Everyone have a wonderful holiday!

Good morning from another lovely day on the mountain! Yesterday's high was 67 and the overnight low fell to 48. We didn't receive any rain beyond a few immeasurable sprinkles yesterday, but thunder growled all afternoon and there was some lovely lightning. Last evening produced another spectacular presentation of refracted light. Currently it is partly cloudy and a little cooler than yesterday morning, only 55 at the moment, but the mountain is already busy. Happy hiking!

Happy Saturday! Talk about perfect weekend weather...yesterday's high was a warm and sunny 71 and the overnight low was 49. We finally got a little rainfall before dinner when a lovely afternoon shower dropped .3" and then cleared up for a rainbow!
Today has been beautiful so far, clear skies that are just starting to take on that deeper autumn blue. While it is still warm, currently 61 degrees, I am willing those lovely cool fall days to get here faster (Jedi weather mind powers, you know). Come up and enjoy this beautiful weather!
