The mountain was busy yesterday. Dayhikers trying to get to the top before the bad weather moves in for the weekend. The crew went different directions to explore their back yard. Chris took this picture of Alan from Myrtle Point. Alan scurried down a man way just off the point. The picture captures the emerald green of spring in the lower elevations. The high yesterday was 50 with a low of 40. I awoke with a headache this morning. I can usually bet that a low pressure system has moved in when this occurs. Sure enough, the clouds are hanging low and the threat of rain is looming. It is going to be a great day for hot cocoa and a good book. I am predicting not much foot traffic for the day.
