It was a gorgeous day up top. Our little friend, the resident doe, decided Chris needed some help weed eating. I guess she took that in a literal sense. She visits us every afternoon to see where she can help out with lawn care. It was a great day up top to sit and watch deer eat grass. The high was 70º with a low of 55º. It is going to be hot over the next few days. Remember to drink plenty of water on the trail. I always carry at least 2 liters or more when hiking up the mountain. I usually drink it all. I am sure a lot of you have heard that Bullhead trail is closed due to bear activity. We are not sure where the bear was spotted. We are also not sure of any details. As for now, you can hike any of the other trails with no problems.
