"The past is behind us, learn from it. The future is ahead of us, prepare for it. The present is hear, live it. " - Thomas S. Monson
It is a new day on the mountain. The sun has risen and we have a beautiful inversion to make as feel as though we are living on our own island in the sky. The grass is twinkling with dew drops, the birds are singing, and the crew is working hard at getting the tang poured in every juice glass. I know a lot of folks that look forward to that tang to help wash down the pancakes. The temperatures stayed pretty cool all day yesterday. We never reached the upper 40s. Last night was in the low 40s. As long as the clouds stay below us, today is looking like a keeper.
I was so fortunate to get out in the east side of the park this last weekend. I did a little backpacking. It was good for the soul. There are so many flowers blooming. I saw violets, several different types of trillium, showy orchis, and my first lady slipper of the season. It was a splendid weekend to be out and about enjoying what I like to call my "backyard". The locals were saying they have already seen lighting bugs. Summer is going to approach faster then we know.
