It is still cold on up top. The high yesterday was 33 with a low of 26. The clouds made for an amazing sunset last night. The mountain has been busy with day hikers and lots of guests. It is that time of year to make sure you have the right clothing if you are going to attempt a day hike. Remember, we are at least 20 degrees colder up top. Wear layers and bring a jacket. Another key piece of advice is remember to drink plenty of water. You may not feel like you are sweating, but you need to stay hydrated when hiking in these conditions.
