Sorry for the delay today. Sometimes lodge duties can over run us, such as making sure Pete and the other llamas get their pancake dessert. The llamas made it up on this lovely day. They are enjoying hanging out in the sun and eating their alfalfa pellets, llama chow, and pancakes. I think the llama wranglers are just happy to be able to have a normal schedule. It gets tricky dealing with bad weather and making sure the trails are passable. It is a bit cool up here today. The low last night was 27º. It was a brief shock to the system this morning. The high yesterday was 46º. It is warming up the longer the sun is out. I am hoping we get the warmer temperatures that are supposed to grace the lower elevations this week. We can usually count on being about 20º cooler then the low lands. They are calling for high 70s down there, hopefully that will bring high 50s for us.
