After five days laying on the beach and absorbing every bit of vitamin D I could manage, I am ready to take on this thick layer of fog and rain. Chris said they had perfect weather for the week I was gone. I guess that makes me the rain link. The hike up the mountain was gorgeous. As soon as I reached the top, I was smacked in the face by a wall of fog. The high yesterday reached 65º with a low of 50º. The warmer temperatures in the lower elevations are helping us hang on to some warmer temperatures up top. I did notice a lot of the mountain ash berries are out. Fall is just around the corner. It won't be long until the crew starts making their predictions for first snow.
