Yesterday was what perfect days are made of. Cool temperatures, sunny skies, and flowers blooming everywhere. The high was 68º with a low of 46º. The hikers decided yesterday was better for a day hike. Can't say I blame them. It was spectacular. We are starting to see our number of guests drop again. It is that time of year when the families are at home getting the kids ready for the first day of school. We notice less large groups and more couples for this time of year. This is also the time of year we see the weather patterns shift. The rainy days seem to be replaced with cool and sunny days. We are coming into my favorite time on the mountain. I often tell people that September on the mountain is more like October in the lower elevations. We don't have much vegetation that changes color, so it is more cooler temperatures and crisp skies than fall colored foliage.
