I awoke to the sun creeping up over the horizon. I have a feeling it is going to be a spectacular day on the mountain. The crew members are ready to have some great weather so they can get out and explore their new home.
The high yesterday was 39º with a low of 18º. It is bone chilling cold this morning. I heard reports of Alum being very slick in spots along the trail. Be careful if you are heading up that trail. Make sure you get some sort of ice crampon before you hike up. WE ARE CURRENTLY OUT OF YAK TRAKS. We hope to have another shipment arrive within the week. Have a good hike and be safe.
We are hoping to see the llamas today. They are going to attempt to make their first trip up the mountain for the season. Say a little prayer for them and I will keep you posted on their success.
