Greetings valley dwellers! It's a cold and dry one out there today! Perfect for curling up by the heater with a little bit of hot chocolate. With all of those fires happening in the area, we have our fingers crossed for some rain or snow before the end of the season. Our water spigot is still available, but if you are planning a hike up soon please be mindful of the water shortage. Many shelters on the AT are closed due to the lack of water. Cold weather gear is a must for hikes up for the rest of the year! The current temperature is 30 and the low last night was 32. BRRRR! Only two weeks left this season! Happy hiking. Love, Turnip
Jess, chopping away at those tomatoes for tonight
