Weather:
The rain ended by midday, but stubborn clouds and a gusty, 30+mph SW wind
delayed the count until the final hour. By 4:30 (EDT), low clouds had once
again obscured the summit.

Raptor Observations:
A Peregrine Falcon slipped through a window of blue, cutting through the
south wind as though it was not more than a whisper.

Non-raptor Observations:
The usual mountain residents were out foraging in the spruces and
blueberries. Common Ravens wove in and out of tendrils of fog, the music of
air through wings marking their positions when they ghosted out of view.
