    This feels like the opening scene to a disaster movie.

    Aside from that, it's pretty cool up there most days. I think the all time record is still 72.

    Unfortunately in conditions like this the air quality up on the ridgelines is unhealthy due to high ozone.

    Was up there yesterday. Other than the fact it was ATV day on the auto-road (never heard of that one before) it was awesome up there. Cool and windy.

    It's not the heat, it's the humidity.

    I think they had the good fortune to put the temperature probe in a tailpipe of a car at 5300' inadvertently.
