Hot on Palomar

The National Weather Service is forecasting temperatures to be in the low 90s on Palomar Mountain through the weekend. Visitors to the mountains will not find much escape from the even higher temperatures that will bake the inland valleys.

Be sure to drink plenty of water for your travels.

Personally, I long for cooler weather and could even handle a light dusting of snow, like the one seen in this photo taken around 1960.

I did not realize the bottom half of the dome was painted beige. I thought it was always all white?

How long was the dome multicolored?

And yes, that is a beautiful photograph.

In the early years the dome was painted with a reflective silver paint as in this photo.

Alas, I do not know when the change in painting the dome occurred.
