" There is an art of finding one's direction in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up." - René Daumal
It was only fitting that our sunset was as great a show as sunrise. Yesterday was a perfect day for getting out and exploring what this mountain top has to offer. The crew enjoyed playing in their back yard. The high was a comfortable 69º with a low of 47º. Chris took these photos of sunset to share with you all.
I want to add one thing to this blog entry. We are starting to experience warmer weather which brings out more hikers. Please remember, no matter what the conditions, it is extremely important to bring water with you. Not only bring it, drink it. We see more cases of dehydration on this mountain then any other medical emergency. Even if you are not thirsty, make yourself drink. I am not talking about caring a soda up the mountain or an energy drink. I mean water or some sort of sport drink that will help to rehydrate you. We have treated water at the top that you can refill your bottles with. I suggest drinking about 2 liters, if not more, during the hike up. Remember folks, drink your water. It can make for a much more pleasurable hike.
