Meadow Rovers Rock

Wow, what a weekend this past one has been.  Paradise and Sunrise were both swamped with visitors.  Paradise had 4 giant size tour buses, 4 full-sized school buses each full of eager trail hikers along with 6-10 smaller tour buses.  Add to this the continual parade of cars even past 5:00 p.m!  Sunrise may not have had all the buses, but it did have the busiest day yet this summer.  Fortunately, we had the largest group ever of rovers on the trails at Paradise talking with guests and maintaining the security of the Meadows.  Thank you to all who were there - it was a crazy day!  I know from an earlier blog, Sunrise did not have as many, but to those of you who braved the 500+ contacts, kudos - you are awesome.

The crowds will continue to grow as the weather stays hot and we will need all the help we can get.  While it helps both Lynn and I with planning when you let us know ahead of time, feel free to just will be welcome. 

For the early birds, there is a radio in the Climbing Information Center at Paradise available from 7:00 a.m.  Let me know if you are going to be an early bird so I can reserve that radio for you.  Also, if you are late returning to the Visitor Center, you may leave your radio at the Paradise Inn registration desk. 

A big thanks to all the new rovers who are recruiting new rovers!  Orientations have been ongoing since the June training sessions and the newbies are hitting the trails daily.

Again, thanks for all the work you are doing.  The Mountain is grateful.
