It’s a busier day on the mountain, and the weather has certainly been more interesting than yesterday. Beginning to lose track of how many rain showers and thunderstorms we’ve had roll through this afternoon. A couple moments of hail as well. Just when you think it’s over as skies clear and the sun shines, the next squall sneaks up on us. Temps continue to hang out in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Winds remain calm. Saturday’s precip tally was an unimpressive 0.05” of rainfall, but enough to keep the streak of wet days alive.
Conditions could not have been better than what occurred Saturday evening. The clouds finally broke by dinner time, the sun was out, a pleasant 60° and no wind. Every guest was out eating dinner on their porches. You could feel the vibes of happiness and relaxation radiating across camp, all while our dedicated crew scurried between kitchen and cabins offering their services. A different experience than the decades long history of lodge interior dining, but a fine example of folks making the most of the situation, enjoying the company of those they are with, and appreciating their time in a wilderness setting. There was even a sunset spectacular to be had.
The calls for rain in the extended forecast don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. So keep those rain jackets handy. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
