We ended the day the same way started, with our head above the clouds. The inversion lasted all day. We had a beautiful sunny day on top of the mountain. Someone asked what kind of conditions are necessary for an inversion to occur, I am not sure of the answer. We have seen them in every month. We experienced a warmer day yesterday. The high was 66º with a low of 44º. So far, we are starting out with a sunny day again today. I did the math and figured out I only have 45 more working days on the mountain. It is hard to believe how fast this season is going by. I think back on all of the amazing trips Chris and I have been able to take because we had the winters off. We have been to New Zealand, Costa Rica, Panama, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Tanzania, all over the United States, and finally Hawaii. After all of our travels, it always felt like we were returning home when we hiked up for the new season each March. I don't know that the next chapter in our lives will sink in until March when the crew returns to the mountain with out us. I read the comments and hear people say how the mountain has gotten in their blood. I guess I could say that after twelve seasons, the mountain has gotten in my soul.
