It’s shaping up to be a beautiful Monday in the mountains. Some lingering clouds and fog should eventually break up and move out as the day progresses, giving way to bright sunshine and clearer skies. We’ll start out cool once again this morning, but the thermometer will begin its climb back toward more seasonably appropriate temps, hitting the mid 50s this afternoon. Tuesday should be decent early on with a slight chance for some stormy activity late in the day.
Reminder that our reservations office is closed today in observance of Memorial Day and will resume accepting calls and e-mails tomorrow during normal business hours. The park is sure to be busy today with families still in town for the holiday weekend or kickstarting their summer vacations. If you aren’t attending a parade or ceremony today, but are opting to spend time in the wilderness, be sure and take a moment to remember the fallen. Paying tribute to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, perhaps from a vantage point of Myrtle Point or at the base of Rainbow Falls, offers an opportunity to reflect. To those who gave all in service of our nation, and to those surviving families and fellow service members who lost a friend or loved one, we thank you.
Have a great day.
