Bugs!

Bugzilla on Mount Jefferson

Today on the summit we received some visitors that we don’t typically see on the summit. It is only on the calmest of days when the temperatures are warm that we seem to get these visitors, but when they are here they are everywhere. I am talking about bugs.

Today’s conditions were perfect for their arrival on the summit. The winds were low, calm in fact at some points, a rare occurrence, and the temperatures rose from the lower-30s to the mid-40s during the day. As they buzzed around it looked like snow was falling through the rays of sun as it reflected off their wings. Besides the bugs the ravens also seemed to be enjoying the day. Because it was so calm you could hear them flapping their wings as they flew past the summit. Marty even went out for a little sun today and rolled around on the deck happy as could be.

Good thing everyone was enjoying the weather today as tomorrow will be very different with lots of rain expected.
