It is time for a little vacation. Chris and I will be hiking down for some time off. We are heading to New Orleans for Jazz Festival. I would call it rest and relaxation but I don't think that is going to happen. I am looking forward to hearing some of the nations best musicians. I am also looking forward to some warmer weather. The low last night was 31 with the high yesterday only reaching 38 degrees. 70 degrees and sunshine sounds might nice about now. The mountain is currently socked in and it is still raining. It should make for a nice commute off the mountain. I will be back on Monday. The staff in the office will keep you up to date on the conditions up top. Have a great week and happy hiking.
