An unexpected 1.5" of snow greeted us this morning. Yesterday was a strange weather day. We went from sunny to cloudy, to sleet, to sunny, and back to flurries. One thing is for sure, the weather did not stop the day hikers. We were packed with hikers drinking hot chocolate and warming themselves by the heater. The temperatures never rose above 36º and the low was 23º. Friday was a perfect autumn day which led to Saturday being a typical winter day. Just goes to show how quickly things can change in these mountains.
