We're off to a chilly and windy start this Thursday, with the thermometer showing 29 degrees but feeling much colder outside in the elements. Despite starting the day out in a fog, the intermittent puffs of gray and white are gradually thinning out, giving way to sunny skies. Last night's passing showers didn't amount to much in the rain gauge, but enough fell to create some slick places around camp and on trail. Please use caution, particularly on the exposed log water bars, as they tend to freeze up first without appearing so. Yesterday's high temperature registered at 48 degrees, with a low of 28.
Let's wrap up our recollection of the year in pictures with this third and final installment. Enjoy some of the sights and stories from the months of August through November.
