The sand myrtle are in full in swing around Myrtle Point. Chris took a stroll yesterday afternoon to check it out. We had a rain shower around noon which cleared out later in the afternoon. The high yesterday was 62º with a low of 51º. It is currently raining cats and dogs. The link takes you to some interesting reading on the origin of the phrase. I thought you might enjoy a little lite reading on a day like today. Life on the mountain has been a little wet lately. It has been my experience that the more rain we get in the beginning of the season, the better the blackberry season we have. You will want to check with the National Park for current laws on picking berries. They may differ from park to park.
If you get out for a hike this weekend, make sure you have your rain gear. The tropical storm is making its way up the east coast and is making its presence known on our favorite mountain. Stay dry and happy and hiking.
