Well, we're getting all of the weather that was advertised. September is rolling in like a lion. The winds really picked up around camp about the same time the stove was getting turned on for breakfast prep. The strongest gusts have been between 30-40 mph so far. We tallied 0.9" of rainfall yesterday, caught a break during the night, and it resumed just after 10:00 AM. These conditions are expected to linger throughout the day and night before clearing off tomorrow. Thursday's high temperature was once again 60 degrees, with another low of 50. These clouds, wind, and rain are keeping temps in the mid-50's currently.
If you come upon any damage to the trails, whether it be downed trees or slides, please let us and/or the NPS know so they can be tended to promptly, particularly on Trillium Gap. We want to make sure our favorite llamas can stay on schedule! Going forward, the llama train will be packing up supplies every Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Have a great day and stay dry out there!
