It's a subdued Sunday on the mountain, as the clouds continue to cling to us, and a recent sprinkle has made good on the rain prediction. We're expecting a big crowd tonight, but so far the day hiker traffic has been minimal. Yesterday's high temperature came in at 62 degrees, and our overnight low was a mild 50. We're in the upper 50's currently. Excellent sleeping weather, combined with the effects from a fantastic feast prepared for the crew by Heather. Yums!
That's right. Autumn leaf chasing season is coming quick! The 2017 season now has fewer than three months remaining, so hopefully you can squeeze a visit into your schedule if you haven't yet been able to this year. Alum Cave, The Boulevard, Brushy Mountain, and Trillium Gap are of course open to hikers 24/7. Rainbow Falls is closed during the week (Monday-Thursday) for its trail rehabilitation work, and of course Bull Head remains closed indefinitely due to fire and storm damage.
Enjoy the remainder of your weekend!
