Early rifle season for bear opened September 6th. Be sure to wear blaze orange and be especially careful when hiking near private property! The week of September 14th began with a beautiful Sunday. The temperature was warm but not too hot and the humidity was low. The skies were bright and blue with only a few clouds making for a perfect hiking day. The forecast through Saturday is for partly sunny skies with temperatures during the day in the low to mid 60's. Some morning showers may be seen in spots on Tuesday but otherwise the week looks clear. The lows at night will dip into the high 30's and may be lower depending on your location and elevation. It seems that fall is in the air prior to the appointed date. Remember, the weather forecast is only a prediction and always contains percentages. Be prepared and have a plan for the most likely and least likely forecast! Are you prepared to stay out overnight on a trail? Conditions in the morning can change drastically by afternoon. Conditions at the trailhead do not always reflect the conditions on the peaks! Variable trail and weather conditions are a hallmark of these mountains. BE CAREFUL AND BE PREPARED!
