Getting the rocking chairs ready for tired hikers.
It feels a little chilly on the mountain today, last night the low reached 27 and the high yesterday was 51. Today has settled in the lower 50's but the sun keeps teasing us and then dipping back behind the clouds. We will have a new llama packing schedule this season! They will be coming up on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays this season to accommodate a schedule change, so if you want to see them in action, those will be the days to head up Trillium! The crew has been working all day on the office and the cabins, getting them ready for the season. It is much quieter on the mountain now that the airlift crew has hiked down...although it's hard not to miss them!
