The first cold night


The first cold night ....

First the northbound thru hikers rush in like hordes of spawning salmon - then the action slows and changes from thru-hiker to section hikers - then to the doldrums of summer - when one day is busy and the next is dead.

THEN - after the first brisk night sometime in September - folks start imagining less sweat and insects and come rushing back into the beginning of September when all the leaves have fallen.

Here we are now - September 5th - and we've already had a few cooler nights.

The reservations are picking up fast and furious for both accomodations and shuttles - and we are looking forward to our 3rd great Autumn run - since opening up in March of 2014 !
