It may not be the best picture, but it means spring is on the mountain. I love watching the spring beauties pop up around camp. It won't be long until the threat of snow is in a our past, for a few months anyway. The crew has already had the pleasure of watching a few deer around camp. I am sure it is only a matter of time before our first bear sighting. I love this time of year when I get to witness the mountain shift from a cold grey winter to a vibrant green spring. The temperatures felt like spring again yesterday. The high was 61º with a low of 49º. The clouds cleared out again for another great day to be on the mountain. We are currently socked in and waiting to see if we get a repeat of the past two days.
As for trail conditions, I have heard that all trails are clear. Now, this is the news I received before the big storm last week. There may be some trees down but nothing that is not passable.
