If you find yourself at the summit of Mount LeConte at sunset time be sure to visit Cliff Tops for some great colors. Clear evenings always reveal a spectacle of color, a sky mixed with deep reds and vibrant oranges. Count yourself lucky if you ever get to experience such a sight in person. Currently we have a partly cloudy sky with chances of some showers coming our way later this evening. Temperatures are on the rise today, currently 67 degrees and climbing. Last night we only dropped to 51 degrees. Looking into the weekend we can expect dry conditions during the morning hours but look to get rain in the afternoons. Be sure to pack that rain gear.
Trillium Gap Trail is continuing to receive maintenance work but is now open Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and federal holidays. The trail is still closed Monday through Thursday.
