There is nothing better than sitting out at Myrtle Point watching the clouds roll in. Yesterday was a perfect day for that. The rain clouds didn't blow through until later in the afternoon. The high was 67º with a low of 49º. The mountain was abustle with hikers, the crew has settled into their routines, and the weather is getting warmer by the day. Feels, smells, and looks like summer on the mountain. I am going to enjoy taking in my last full summer around the lodge. I want to take the last twelve years of memories with me and keep them close to my heart. This mountain will always feel like home to me. I know you all understand because I read how the mountain has touched so many of your lives. That is what makes this mountain top so magical. It means so much to so many.
