Well, after a full day of sunshine we are back in the clouds today...Yesterday's high reached 70 which made our overnight low of 54 feel cool and crisp. We had zero rain all day and overnight. Today the temperature is only 58 as of yet and we are socked into a lazy cloud that may or may not produce some rain later in the afternoon...so pack that rain gear just in case!
We are starting to see bears again up top and also on trail, so everyone be vigilant about food, trash and remember- if you see a bear on trail, DON'T RUN! Stand your ground, make lots of noise and thrown rocks if you need to in order to deter the bear and he is most likely going to turn and scamper off! Most importantly, be mindful of your surroundings and respect the wild space that you have chosen to visit! See y'all up top!

Nice picture. Reminds me of yesterday afternoons big buck just out side the window eating my wife's hosta. The deer here just love them. HAGD

I have an eight man cabin reserved for September 24. We are only 2 hikers and are looking for others who might want to share the space (and cost). Contact me if you are interested.
