James Taylor and local favorite Carole King will be continuing their extremely successful national tour tonight with a stop at our River Run Plaza. Alas, all sold out. Instantly, in fact, the day they went on sale some months ago. We only wish we had more seats. (Working on it, by the way) And that is why, in case you noticed, the Gondola closed early today. They are setting up the stage for the show all day today.
But all will be back to normal Tuesday morning for all the hikers and bikers and flyers that have been up every day. And the Weather Service is forecasting hot, hot, hot weather for the rest of the week so plan to take your lunch break at the Roundhouse, or ride up just for the fresh air, or try an afternoon glass of wine on the deck up there. I promise you, it is worth the trip.
We’re hearing rumors that they might go back to starting the lifts at 9am instead of 10…Anybody have an opinion on that? We know there were a few early hikers that got their schedules messed up by the 10:00 opening. A nice gesture, if they do it. We’ll see…
Look for our earlier blog with the description of the Bald Mountain Trail. You’ll find it a tough hike up, but a beautiful walk, and a very civilized trip down on the Gondola (free).
See you there
