The wind was howling last night, giving the impression that a storm was brewing. So far, though, we’ve just been rolling in and out of the clouds. Hopefully nothing else comes of it so our llamas have an enjoyable trek up and down the mountain today. Yesterday’s high was a balmy 58° and our low was a mild 43°. Depending on how much sun we get this afternoon, conditions ought to feel similar.
The crew will continue to tackle necessary tasks again today in anticipation of our reopening on Monday. Even in these last couple months of the closure, several improvements have been completed, made possible by the lack of people. One area visitors will notice immediately upon arrival is where young firs and spruces have been transplanted to the fill void of a recently removed behemoth. Instead of enduring a doomed fate in their original location, these youngin’s will now have the opportunity to live long and prosperous lives, while also fighting erosion and improving the aesthetics. Just one way the lodge shows it’s commitment to the natural environment around us.
