Whew.....what a whirlwind of a day. Saturday was a picture perfect day for all the hikers who made it up. The mountain top was hoppin'. I could see some of the peaks in the lower elevations and the color was popping. Bonnie and John hiked back up on Friday and said they thought the leaves were peak around the bluffs on Alum Cave trail. The sky was amazing last night. I hung out for a little while in hopes we had the right conditions to see the northern lights. No luck, but the stars were twinkling bright. The low last night was 41 with the high yesterday of 57. A cloud is hovering over this morning. Hopefully it will be a repeat of yesterday and the cloud will blow out of here by mid morning. I hope everyone is having a great fall.
