While we have been under a forecast that has called for lots of rain these past two days we have only received 0.1 inches. Luck has been on our side as we watch thunder storms hit the valley below. Lots of dark and heavy clouds lingering just out of reach. Forecasts are calling for rain later this afternoon but fingers crossed our good fortune continues. Temperatures have stayed pretty consistent with highs in the low 60s and only dropping to the upper 40s at night. It is currently 56 degrees. Our llama team have certainly enjoyed the chance to rest at the summit in rain free conditions. Camp today is filling up fast with day hikers and overnight guests arriving early to try and beat the rains.
A notice from the National Park Service that the back country shelter near the lodge is currently closed due to high bear activity. No overnight camping is currently permitted at the shelter till further notice.
