It looks and feels more like spring on the mountain today. A little after 10:00 AM the winds started to pick up and the rain moved in. Looks like it'll be hanging around the rest of today and early tomorrow. There wasn't much temperature variance yesterday, as our high only tagged 64 degrees and our overnight low remained a mild 57. What few showers we witnessed on Thursday only amounted to 0.22" of liquid precipitation.
Rain, wind, and cooler than normal temps can all lead to hypothermia, even in late July in these mountains. Please pack the appropriate layers to get up here safely and as dry as possible. Sometimes, that precip just finds its way into every crevasse, in which case we are always happy to sell you one of our styling apparel pieces to help get you dry...from shirts to flannel pants and hoodies to socks.
A big thank you to a kind and thoughtful Miss Avery for her gift this morning of the hand drawn picture seen above. I'd say she absolutely nailed the beautiful details of this place, featuring a grazing deer in front of a lush spruce-fir forest. If we have the pleasure of hosting this young and talented individual in the future, maybe she'll intrigue us with another great depiction of our mountain.
Thanks for stopping by the site, and should you hit the trails, try and stay dry!
