Clear Day on the Summit

The Ravines Just before Sunset

Today’s conditions on the summit could not be better. Since I walked up to my desk this morning the visibility has not dropped below 75 miles. The winds have been below 40mph since around 7am this morning and on top of all this the temperature rose to 31 degrees. It was a great day to walk out on the deck. It was an even better day for the EduTrip that made its way to the summit today. They were able to take a few stops to capture the view. On top of that they were all able to take a walk around the summit and enjoy our unique home. On top of that the particular trip that is here is a alpine culinary trip lead by John Bauhs who is the chef from New Years dinner. All I know is that I am ready for chocolate cake tonight!
