It was a warm one yesterday. We reached 74 up top. I know that is nothing compared to the temperatures down below, but us mountain folks are spoiled. The humidity reached us all the way up here at 6593'. The flowers are amazing right now. I found a pink turtlehead that was in full bloom. The crew is patiently awaiting blackberry season. Only a few more weeks. Some of you asked if we had seen the bear anymore. It has not returned. I believe it was just passing thru.
