Good morning from our favorite mountain top. We had a nice day yesterday. The high was 58º with a low of 46º. Ruthie will be on her way down shortly to help out in the office. Yes, it is that time of year when the phone will be ringing off the hook and people will pushing redial like it was a button on their favorite video game. Take a deep breath and keep dialing. You know it will be worth it. We certainly appreciate your time and energy. We love seeing all of the friendly faces at the top of the mountain.
Fall is in the air around here. The weather is wonderful and we are starting to see a little bit of color on the few trees we have that change. I hear there is some color a little lower on the mountain. Won't be long before the leaves start showing off for us.
We are still getting reports of bear activity around the mountain. Please remember, do not leave your personal belongings alone. Pretend you are at an airport and keep them with you at all times. If you are staying at the lodge, keep everything in your cabin. It is that time of year when the bears are wandering around trying to find food and a warm bed for the winter. We don't want them to try out our beds. We just have to make sure they keep moving on.
These sightings have been just that, sightings. The bear gets spooked and runs off into the woods. That is the way we want to keep it.
