Autumn is hanging on in the lower elevations. It is slowly fading but there is still some beautiful color to be seen. We had a busy weekend on the mountain. A lot of folks made there way up to witness the fall color in all of its glory. The temperatures are starting to call old man winter's name. The high yesterday was 55º with cold 26º for the low. If there had been any precipitation in our forecast, we would have seen the first snow. Instead, we awake to the vision of our breath escaping through the frosty air. Time to make gallons of hot chocolate. I think we may be serving mass quantities this morning.
