The rime forming in the trees outside my cabin. It got colder as the day went on yesterday.
We had a low of 23 last night. With the wind, it felt a good deal colder than that. We had a high of 37, which was also the temperature at observation. It sounds like it's going to be clear and sunny the next few days. The trails should be very icy this morning, so beware!
Ron & Gary are still here helping out with the solar panels and all sorts of other camp chores. Gary made some great biscuits this morning. Another reason I am happy to be back in the South!
There's been a little bear cub spotted in camp recently. I'm going to try my best to get a picture of him today.
I am going for a little hike this morning, then doing my last bit of chores before I'm up here on my own. Looking forward to our Thanksgiving feast tonight!
Sunrise this morning. There's some inversion in the valley after the high pressure system left the mountains.
