Ahh, it feels great to be home. Chris and I had a nice commute back to work yesterday. We managed to beat the rain. We noticed the sand myrtle blooming at Inspiration Point, a nice patch of trillium half way up the trail, and thousands of bluets covering the forest floor. The rain finally made its way to our mountain hideaway. The rain gauge showed an inch and a half over the last 24 hour period. The high yesterday was 60 with a low of 43. Today is starting out with raindrops on the roof and the lamps lit in the dining hall.
I know you all enjoyed Nathan's posts. He has a way with words. Now you know our secret to entertainment on the mountain. With all of his experiences, he makes for a fantastic story teller. He keeps the crew in stitches, during our crew meals, with his tales of horse wrangling, space camp, and living at one of the most remote locations on earth. I have already worked one season with Nathan and I feel as though I have only scratched the service to his vault of life's musings.
