The Sun Came Out!

The Sun was Bright…

Today was one of the more pleasant days on the mountain in a while and entire herds of people came to the summit. Talking to my friend, Wayne, he was surprised to hear we were in the fog this morning as he couldn’t see a cloud in the sky from his home in Jackson. As it was though, lower level moisture was being lifted up over the mountain from the west and kept us in the fog for the first half of the day. Around noon we finally broke out and were afforded our first glimpses of the surrounding mountains and a rare view of this thing called the Sun.

I’ve just returned from taking advantage of the clear, summery weather and took a hike over towards the Great Gulf with other friends up here. Tomorrow looks to be another wet day, so I figured I might as well get out while the getting’s good. The temperature was great in the mid 50s and a light wind. We all sat upon the ledges overlooking Spaulding Lake and passed the time with the lengthening shadows. Now that we have returned, it is time to hang out with Michelle and the EduTrip she is leading. This is the first EduTrip on our shift since April and I hear there is a musician on the trip who plays both the guitar and the keyboard. With any luck, some music will be in store for the evening!
