The lodge is coming together. The new crew has been bonding over dishes and dust. We have six new crew members this year. I will work on getting their pictures and information up as soon as possible. It feels good to get the winter wiped away and the cabins set up for the new season.
You have often read about what we miss from the land of plenty while we are on the mountain. I thought I would share what we miss about the mountain while we are on winter break. One routine I miss is my morning french press coffee with my husband. He wakes up early to make breakfast for the guests, I then make my way to the kitchen and pour my self a cup of coffee. I love finding out what music he has picked out to listen to while flipping pancakes. This morning it was the Rolling Stones, or Mick and boys as he likes to refer to them. Once again, it is the little things in life that the mountain makes so special.
Today seems to be a little on the cloudy side. The low last night was 39 with a high of 52. The snow is melting but the trail is still pretty slick. It looks like it may rain today. That makes for a good day to scrub the kitchen.
Those of you from last year that were wondering if Chris and I made it to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, I am happy to say we did. We can now add our names to the 19,340' club. I will share pictures and stories on days when not much is going on. Time for me to get to work.
