I have been keeping my eyes open for new growth around the lodge. The buds are coming out. It is great to see green on the bushes on a day when the sunrise was not an option. We are currently under a thick cloud layer. A few sprinkles have tapped on the windows. It is going to be a chilly day up top. The high yesterday was 56º with a low of 38º. It sounds as though the next few days could be breathtaking. I hear the lower elevations could reach almost 80º. That will put us in the sixties. Time to find my shorts and sandals. I will be on the lookout for wildflowers and junco nests. It is that time of year when life returns to the mountain top.
