It may feel like summer down in the valley, with humid conditions and temps in the 80's. Fortunately, here on the mountain things are quite pleasant. Yesterday's high reached a nice 62 degrees, and our overnight low was a mild 48. No precipitation to record, but the recent tropical storm caught us up in that category right quick. Currently we're basking in bountiful sunshine, with temps again hovering in the lower 60's.
This weekend looks promising as far as clear skies and comfortable temps, but expect a big drop off come Sunday night and into Monday. You'll certainly want those extra layers of warmth and protection once the cold front passes through.
Upcoming guests should also take note of our shift in meal times. We do this annually to accommodate our guests' desires to attend sunset and sunrise while staying on the mountain. We never want you to feel rushed or risk running late to a warm, delicious meal that you've earned after climbing the mountain. Currently, guests should plan to eat supper at 5:45 PM and breakfast at 8:15 AM (EST). Once Daylight Savings Time concludes on November 5th, we'll make a shift in the opposite direction for supper, in which case guests will attend sunset before we serve them food. Expect a reminder on that later!
There is still quite a bit of fall color to admire on this mountain's trails. A great deal of gold along the middle elevations. The show should remain strong through the weekend before fading away. If you're in the area, enjoy your time in the outdoors, as October is a fabulous time to be in the mountains!
Have a great rest of the day.
