I was able to escape camp for an hour yesterday. I found a nice quiet spot and enjoyed every minute of listening to nature. I watched the peregrine falcon soar in the sky above me, I heard the scurry of the squirrels looking for food, and I heard the beautiful song of the winter wren. I loved finding the patch of rhododendron that took root in the tiniest crack of this rock. It was a great day to appreciate the mountain. The high yesterday was 69 with a low of 41. If you have plans on staying with us overnight, notice the difference in temperatures. It has been pretty chilly up top. Bring a jacket to layer with. It will make your stay much more comfortable.
