Warm light through chilly woods down Trillium a few days ago.
Hello from our last full day on top of the mountain! This is Ruthie for the last time this season. It is a beautiful blue-sky day and the winds from the past few days have calmed...currently with the sun shining and the temp at 41 it almost feels warm (until you stand still for too long). Our high yesterday reached 46 with a low of 27 with mostly sunny skies.
JP arrived yesterday and he will be officially taking over the blog tomorrow as the crew breaks down camp, pulls on their packs and make their way down the mountain for the last time as a group. It has been a great year, with the usual ups and downs and the added sideways and back and forth that come with life on the mountain. I am looking forward to next year with nothing but excitement and I can't wait to return with vigor to the mountain in spring for a whole new year!
From the whole 2014 crew, we wish you fond farewells and happy trails!
