This morning I awoke to clouds covering our view of the valley below. While sitting on my porch, I noticed a couple of deer grazing and playing silently among the foliage. I surprisingly managed to catch a picture of one in mid air. We are expected to stay in the clouds throughout the day although no rain is expected until later in the evening. At that point we may see temperatures cool enough to allow for the rain to turn into snow. Stay tuned to see if we receive any overnight!
Yesterday, we reached a high of 50 degrees while overnight we stayed just above freezing at 34 degrees. While currently at a mild 42, cloud cover and wind gusts of about 15 miles per hour are causing us to put on a couple layers as we do our work about camp. Tonight, we are expected to receive that rain/snow mix with temps in the upper 20s. If you are planning to reach the summit within the next couple of days, warm waterproof layers are a must and traction devices should be kept close by in anticipation of some icy areas on the trail.
