There are trees out there? You forget when you have been staring at a wall of clouds all day. Someone described it as being "boxed in" even though you are on top of a mountain. It is a strange feeling to know there are thousands of acres around but you feel as though you are confined to one area. Normally, the fog does not affect me that way, but I will say, after a whole summer of fog, it now makes me a little claustrophobic. I am sure some of you are going to think I am silly. How could it affect me this way? I live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. What is the saying? I liked this version, " Walk a mile in someone else's shoes before you judge their journey." The good news is the forecast is calling for more sunshine today. Bring it on.
The high yesterday was 56º with a low of 41º. We received 1.56" of rain over the 24 hour period. Chris hiked came back from his days off and he looked like a drenched puppy. I am sure he will be thrilled when he reads my description. Time to go light the lamps so we can see this morning.
