Change is in the Air

After a busy Labor Day weekend on the summit, it’s become subtly clear that the busy summer season is slowly winding down. Soon, the leaves will start changing and the temperatures will begin to drop rapidly, reminding us that winter is around the corner. Over the next couple of shifts, we’ll start prepping and winterizing instrumentation, putting in the storm windows, breaking in our new Eastern Mountain Sports gear, and swapping out our summer boots for winter ones, thanks to Vasque.
It’s hard to believe we’re nearly halfway through September already, and glancing at the calendar it’s hard not to remember the tragic events that occurred on this day 14 years ago. We’ll be on the lookout tomorrow for those participating in Flags on the 48 and hiking in honor of all of the lives that were lost on September 11, 2001.
