One wondered if the pattern would ever break, but finally, for the first time since June, we have ourselves a multi-day forecast that shows nothing but sunshine! Can’t ask for a much better lead into the upcoming holiday weekend. Conditions are stellar for outdoor exploration. Temps will continue to bounce between the 50s and 60s, and the light breeze at upper elevations will do just enough to take the edge off that persistent humidity. And the timing is especially great for the peak bloom happening for the various late summer wildflowers around the mountain. If you’ve been waiting for ideal hiking conditions to tackle the mountain, now through Friday is the time! Even the peregrine falcons like it well enough outside to come soaring up over the lodge.
