For the first time this season the gang was all here. We finally got our annual crew photo made. It is great to go back and look at the many faces that have worked on the mountain. It really is like one big family. Since Chris and I don't have children, the crew members become like our kids, even if they are 15 years older then us. We love seeing the younger crew members visit later with their families. It is always a delight to keep up with the crews from the past and hear what is happening in their lives and how LeConte will forever play a role in who they are today.
The weather has been lovely but cool. The lows over the weekend were in the mid 30s. Last nights low was 41 with a high of 57. So far, June feels colder then April did. Chris and I are getting ready for some more days off. We are excited to visit some family in New York state and enjoy some warmer temperatures. These days off will also include watching John and Bonnie tie the knot. When they come back from days off, they will be husband and wife. We are so happy for them.
