Warm spring day at the top of Cerro Alto 3-11-17

What a beautiful day on Cerro Alto , warm and no wind at the top . Many folks were enjoying the mountain today including amber , Kylie , and their dog Bear , they are camping out at the summit . Very brave of them because it is a little spooky up there at night , however they have a full moon , a sunset  and a sun rise to enjoy ! I hope I spelled the names correctly .I also hope the video works .
