Wow, was it a beautiful day on the mountain yesterday. This peak hadn’t felt that kind of warmth from the sun in quite a while. The way things look, the rest of this weekend should feel the same. We managed to reach 65° in the afternoon, and our low was only 41°. Skies are mostly clear and we should see the upper 60s sometime again today.
Should be a great day to explore the trails that are open, like Rainbow Falls, Bull Head, Trillium Gap, and The Boulevard. Alum Cave remains closed, and is being patrolled by NPS Law Enforcement issuing citations to those disregarding the safety closure. The lodge is closed and will not open for business until Monday. Shirts? Monday. Cookies? Monday. Overnight stay? Monday. Picture in front of the Dining Hall? Monday.
