A hazy start to this Friday and skies aren’t exactly going to get any clearer today. Whatever sunshine we can muster this morning will be the best of it over these next 36 hours if the forecast holds. Clouds are supposed to build and thicken as today progresses, eventually giving way to rain showers during the night that will persist we’ll into late Saturday afternoon. Winds to remain light ranging from 5-10mph. Temps should be getting slightly warmer for us up top, as we start out in the lower 50s but ought to see them tap the mid 60s later on.
The coneflower are really coming into form around camp with their annual sea of yellow. What few monkshood the deer didn’t digest are also peaking. Further down the mountain the stalks of grass of Parnassus and gentian continue to gain height, but won’t begin their show for a couple more weeks yet. August is always a great time to enjoy the natural beauty of the mountain.
