It was a great day to scout for bears. We have had an active bear on the mountain, so Chris and I decided we would go looking for it. The only thing we saw were some awesome views. Not a cloud in the sky and the temperature reached 66 degrees. I am wondering if this year will be "the year" we hit 80 degrees on the mountain. That would be a record breaker. I personally hope we do not. I am rather used to the cool temperatures on the mountain.
