Good afternoon trail hikers, blog readers, and mountain enthusiasts alike! Writing from the mountain top which has once again decided to keep us on our toes about the weather! This morning was clear and beautiful, but just like yesterday, the clouds have rolled in and are battling it out with the sun for sky time. Yesterday's high was 68 and the low was 51. Currently, we are (for the moment, at least) at a sunny 63 degrees. There is a chance of isolated thunderstorms in the mountains this afternoon, so needless to say, pack for rain and as park dispatch advised me this morning "don't stand in the lightning!" (That made me giggle early this morning!). Happy hiking!
