"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky." -Rabindranath Tagore We have been blessed with some beautiful sunsets lately. I guess that is the gift from all of the rain we have been getting. The high yesterday was 64º with a low of 54º. People are asking about hiker traffic on July 4th. It all depends on what day the 4th falls on. This year will be a long weekend for a lot of folks. I am sure we will have a higher volume of traffic up the mountain. I would not let it deter you from making the trip, part of the fun is meeting some really interesting people at the top.
Chris and I are getting ready to head down the mountain. We are going to hang out in Gatlinburg for a bit and work at the Gatlinburg Farmers Market. If you are in town, stop by and say hello. I hope you all have a wonderful 4th where ever you decide to spend it. I am sure there will be some incredible firework displays around the country. Have a great weekend and happy hiking.
