Greetings valley dwellers! The mountains are smokey and wet today. Perfect conditions for reading, napping, or...working out! Jess and I pumped some iron at the shelter before the rain hit and are feeling pretty awesome. A beautiful cloud dusted sunset brought with it some thunder storms so it looks like a rainy weekend ahead. Despite the rain, our beautiful ray of sunshine, Pauline came up ready to work last night and will be with us the rest of the season, so come say howdy on your next trip up! Some of the dudes went down for their days off so we are rocking it at minimum crew this coming week. Our llama boys will be here tomorrow carrying their wide loads so remember to leave room at the trillium gap parking lot for them. The low last night was a crisp 51 and the current temperature is a wet and lightning fuelled 62. Be safe! Bring your flippers and rain jackets, it's a wet one. Love always, Turnip
Crew clothes on the line, getting a second rinse
