It is amazing how a week of warm weather can change the mountain. The snow is melting and our daily routines are returning to normal. We are flying one more load up the mountain, and hopefully that will last until the llamas can make it up. I am ready to see those cute, stinky llamas. The high yesterday was 64. It turned out to be another amazing day on top of Mt. LeConte. I am not sure where the rain is that the weather forecasters keep calling for. It is not making its way up here. I will keep you posted on any trail updates. I am still hearing that Boulevard has a couple of tricky sections. You will still want ice crampons if you hike this trail. The north faces of the mountain are not melting as fast. I hope everyone is enjoying spring. Chris and I will be hiking down tomorrow night for some much needed r&r. I am excited to see what flowers are blooming on the other trails.
