Yesterday's sky was a canvas painted with pinks, purples, and oranges. It was a breathtaking end to a perfect day. The high reached 57º. After spending the first few weeks in the teens, that temperature filled us with warmth and thoughts of summer. Just to let you know how crazy the temperatures can be, the low was 34º. It was pretty cold last night. This is why it is so important to bring plenty of layers with you when you come up to stay for the night. Today is looking like another gorgeous day up top. Chris and I will hiking down this evening. I am excited to head to Alabama to wish my dad a wonderful 80th birthday. We will be back on Saturday. I know you will enjoy Nathan's knee slapping anecdotes . Happy Hiking and see you on Saturday.
