It is a cold, misty morning at the lodge. The dining room is filled with the lights of the oil lamps. It is a cozy setting for visiting with friends and family. I am guessing the games are going to be a popular attraction in the office. Today is a perfect day for a game of Risk by oil lamp light. The crew members, that are off this afternoon, are discussing the length of their up and coming naps. It is a great day to wrap up in a fuzzy blanket and catch up on some reading. Chris left this morning, with Walt in tow, heading to Mammoth Cave National Park. They are going to participate in the wild cave tour. Six hours of caving?? Not my idea of a fun day off, but Chris was super excited. I just hope he doesn't get stuck. At least Walt will be there to help get him out.
Current weather is cool and cloudy. The high yesterday was 62 with a low of 47. The leaves are peaking on the mountain. It is a beautiful display of fur trees and gold leaves.
