LeConte Falls made another appearance yesterday. The mountain received almost 2.5" of rain yesterday. There were some wet hikers making their way up the mountain. After the rain stopped, the clouds lifted, and we had an amazing view of the valley below. Some of the guests were commenting that it was the clearest they have ever seen. It is something else to experience the view once the rain stops and the it has washed away the "haze". You can see every nook and cranny from the hills below to the Kentucky and Virginia borders. The high yesterday was 56º with a low of 50º. We are currently socked in, but it is dry as of now.
Now, as for the wool blankets we use on the beds. They are Hudson Bay blankets. The beds were made from the lumber that was milled on the mountain. Jack Huff built each bed in the rooms where they are today. The beds would have to be disassembled to be taken out of the rooms. When you are on the mountain, just remember, you are sleeping on a piece of LeConte history.
