Good Afternoon, What started as a day full of sunny promise, has now turned into clouds and the occasional mist. Yesterday's high was 45 with a low of 38, and after observation we tallied an additional 0.2" of rain. We'll see how tonight shakes out.
Those of you who have visited the mountain in the last few days since we completed our annual airlift resupply have certainly noticed the quick rehabilitation work done on the Dining Hall steps. The final result is nothing short of a masterpiece, and it certainly has the look of longevity. Major kudos to Brian and Eric on tackling this project for the lodge. Even lodge Assistant Manager Ryn got in on the rock smashing efforts. When the rocks were flown in, with some numbers from the helicopter pilot, we were able to determine the weight of each individual block you see below. Each one comes out to about 435 pounds. Guests can once again enter the Dining Hall from the main doors and admire the work done by these trail work gurus.
The deconstruction process.
The finished product.
Special thanks go out to the Stabler family and friends for the delicious Apple Pies. Everyone enjoy the start of a new week and have a prosperous conclusion to the month of March.
