Wednesday was another great day to spend on the mountain. Mild temps and the occasional cool breeze made for a pleasant time outdoors. As predicted, around lunchtime an isolated thunderstorm found the summit and dumped some rain on us for no more than 30 minutes. It was a nice break before the sun returned and made for a beautiful evening. Temps once again are hanging around in the 60s. There are clouds all around and the chances for precip are much stronger today, so have the rain jackets in tow. In a surprising but welcome turn, the extended forecast shows temps in the valley as less oppressive. As in the 80s variety. Folks down below, hikers, and llamas will surely appreciate that slight change.
