Quite chilly, with 46 d with a 26mph wind speed for a 37 wind chill

Soon after we were in the park, we saw sure signs of wildlife ahead.
On the way up, we saw much more fall color than just a few days before.
By the time we were at the top, it was starting to spit rain with a little bit of frozen stuff
