Seventeen guests were able to make the trek and enjoy the mountain over night. We saw a few day hikers as well. I am sure they enjoyed the beautiful hike up. The leaves seem to be at their peak color from the Alum Cave parking lot to the bluffs. I would predict the lower elevations are going to start seeing the best colors in the next couple of weeks. The temperatures are are not too bad for this time of year. The high yesterday was 57º with a low of 42º. We are currently experiencing sporadic rain showers. It is looking like this weekend is going to be a great time to get out and play in the woods. Hope you will come up and see us.
