It's been cloudy and raining every afternoon since Labor Day. This has had me gnashing my teeth and muttering. A repeat of last year's Rocky Mountain Hurricane?!?
Looks like that might be a no:
If this is right, we're going to have some classic autumn weather. Clear. but probably also COLD overnight.
Speaking of overnight, full moon? No sir.
It'll be a thin waxing crescent, but that won't matter at all to us, because it will be setting an hour before the start. No moon kids. Stars should be brilliant though. There aren't many streetlights up on the Continental Divide either. Look for an unobstructed but shivery view.
Bring your warm stuff!
