What an amazing few days we have had on the mountain. The high yesterday was 68º with a low of 48º. The sand myrtle is starting to pop out. It won't be long before the sides of the cliffs are full of color. I saw a few trillium while hiking up on Monday. I am sure the trillium on the mountain will be out soon. The deer are starting to make an appearance. Our favorite doe is back and keeping our grass short around the llama troughs. I can't wait to see the fawns that are usually born around this time. It really livens up the mountain to have all of the babies playing around the lodge. It is hard to believe it is already May. The season is flying by.

happy days are here again, looks good on the mountain! Doug Y, you have more than neglected your website.
Yes, you're quire right Norman. I've had many other more pressing matters to attend to, but very soon I'll be back on it again. I've been reading here but the traffic isn't as much as it used to be, but I still enjoy and appreciate the photos and the narratives posted each day. It's a wonderful time of year to be up on the mountain I'm sure. I did a bit of tent camping recently at Elkmont and encountered about four "bear jams" going to and from there but I managed each time to get around those. I have been wondering about bears that may show up around the lodge this spring and I think some have been seen on the Trillium trail if I recall correctly. Seems l like I've seen those deer around the lodge nearly every time I've been there which is always pleasant. Looks like they're having a good year, deer and people on the mountain ! G'evening.
