Sometimes the only way to get items up the mountain is to strap them on our backs. Chrissy and Walt agreed to put a couple of chairs on their backs and hike them up the hill. No, grandma was not sitting in them.
Today is Chrissy's birthday! She has never seen a bear in the wild. I saw our first bear in camp this morning. I told her she might get a great b'day present and spot him again.
It was a chilly night last night. The low was only 50, but the clouds were blowing in and it made the air quit cool. The high was 63. Sunny up top as I write. I hope it holds out. Chris and I hike down this evening. Meredith will fill you in the mountain musings while we are gone. See you all Tuesday.
