We could not have asked for a more opposite morning than yesterday's. It was one of the most gorgeous sunrises I've seen up here. I was hoping last night the skies would stay clear for a chance at an award-winning sunrise. We've been living in the clouds for seemingly weeks and could really use the light! The best surprise I got today was finding a doe and her petite fawn strolling through camp. Some guests said they saw two fawns, but I was only able to capture a photo of the one.
After the morning storms yesterday, the skies cleared and offered a nice view of the valley. There were moments of sunshine mixed in later in the day with the clouds. It was a warm day, reaching 72, but not nearly as hot as the valley. There have been heat advisories throughout the state. Please make sure to drink plenty of water if you are going to be outside!
