It is a cool, cloudy, rainy day on the mountain. The guests ate their pancakes by the warm glow of oil lamps. I am sure today will be a bit slow. Most folks will be at a game or sitting somewhere rootin' for their favorite team. Yesterday was a busy day around camp. A lot of hikers took advantage of the beautiful day to visit our favorite mountain top. The high yesterday was 69º with a low of 54º. We have had a couple of bear sightings over the past day or so. I have not seen the little guy so I am actually not sure if he is a typical yearling like we are used to seeing or a bigger bear looking for a home. So, remember, if you are on the trail today, do not leave your pack unattended. Do not leave any personal items unattended. We want this bear to stay wild and continue his hunt for berries and acorns.
