It went from a beautiful morning to a cold and rainy afternoon. The high was 67º with a low of 47º. The mountain received 1.34" of rain yesterday. It made for some cold hikers. We blasted the heater and kept the hot chocolate good and hot. So far, today is looking nice. The sun is up and the sky is partly cloudy. It sounds like we are in for some rain this weekend. Please remember to bring extra clothing with you if you are hiking up in the rain. You are going to get wet and it does get chilly at the top. The Park Service let us know that they are paving the lower lot at Alum Cave. We hope they will be done today, but that is not a guarantee. If you are hiking up Alum Cave trail, you may want to get an early start to get a parking place.
