Greetings valley dwellers! Turnip here with, first and foremost, a shout out to a Mr. Henry Walker and his group for bringing his delicious home grown golden cherry tomatoes and baked goods! We truly appreciate you, and your bountiful harvest. The sun finally decided to stick around for longer than a few minutes today so you might find the crew praising the sun up at Myrtle point, or taking a cat nap on the back porch or hammocks. It cleared up enough last night to watch some of Dolly's summer fireworks in the valley. That is definitely something worth checking out if you are planning on staying the night. It's nice to see them from a different perspective. Our sweet Bonnie and the llama boys made a trip up today! Without them, this lodge couldn't run as well as it does and they work extra hard in the hot summer. So if you plan on hiking up on Sunday, Wednesday, or Friday I'm sure they would appreciate if you shared a left over snack with them. Psssst...they like banana peels....wink wink nudge nudge. The current temperature is a refreshing but sunny 67 and last nights low was 54. The weather forecast is still calling for rain but the clouds have been teasing us. Nevertheless, rain gear is a must. Better to be safe than sorry! Happy hiking and much love, Turnip.
