The sun has returned, at least for this week, and Mountain School students and instructors are taking full advantage of it! With temperatures in the mid- to high-60s, there are lots of opportunities to learn and play in the great outdoors without needing to huddle inside a shelter or under layers of rain gear. Who knows how long this incredible weather will last, so let's eat it up while it's here!
