Yesterday was one of those days when you take your shoes off and walk around to feel every little pebble and crunchy leaf under your feet. The sun warmed up the rocks at Myrtle Point and made for a great napping location. The high yesterday was 48. There were a lot of day hikers wandering around the mountain. The low last night was 28 and it is currently 33 degrees.
We finished up crew business and most of the crew left the mountain for a week of rest. They will return in time to get the lodge set up for guests.
