“The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.”- John Muir
The sun is a welcomed site. We have missed it for the past four days. I was looking at the calendar and realized that we have had three days of sun in the past fifteen days. My "happy light" is getting some good use. The crew was inquiring about renting it if these rainy days hung around much longer. We measured about an inch and half of rain over the last 48 hours. I hope to get out and check on the sand myrtle today. I have a feeling Cliff Tops is at its peak.
P.S. for those of you asking questions about John's hikes, he has not seen the blog post yet. He does not have internet access on the mountain. As soon as I get enough juice in the computer, I intend to sit him down and ask him to address the questions.
