"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike."- John Muir Good morning from our favorite mountain. The sun is rising as is the temperature. The high yesterday was 69º with a low of 55º. I looked up the high for this season and so far it is 74º. We have reached that temperature 5 times this summer. The average has been in the mid to high 60s. We have had less rain but the temps have been cooler. That is just fine. I will take more vitamin D over rain any day. We are plugging along on the mountain. Nicholette has decided to stay on as head cook for next year. I am trying to pass on as many tips as I can. Anything to make her life a little easier next season. Ruthie is learning the ways and eager to do so. She is super excited about the future and spending it at the lodge. Between Nicholette and Ruthie, the lodge is going to be in good hands.
