It is that time of year when Cookie Huff Bowling brings her family and friends back to the mountain she was raised on. Cookie is the daughter of Jack Huff. She spent most of her younger years on this mountain, in fact, she was telling me that she would come up in April and not leave until November. I could not imagine not getting off the mountain at least a few days each month. It is always great to see the younger generations on the mountain running and playing in the great outdoors.
The temperatures are warming up considerably. Yesterdays high was 58. The evenings are still chilly. We reached 33 degrees last night. Remember to pack layers if you are coming up to stay.

Some one was asking about the sand myrtle. We hiked to Rocky Spur on Thursday, it was in full bloom. The view was breathtaking. The sand myrtle on Cliff Tops and Myrtle point still has another few days or a week until it is in its prime.
