My commute to work yesterday was phenomenal. The colors are vibrant. The air had a crispness and the sky was blue. I wish I could say the same for today. It is currently raining up top. The high yesterday was 57 with a low of 40. I have had a few questions about the winter caretaker. I just wanted to let people know that the blog will continue thru the winter. Alex, a past crew member, will be hiking up in November and taking over the blog for the winter. He has been on crew for two years. You will get a break from me until March and then I will be back.
