Thanks, Ryn, for giving the iconic Dining Room sign a facelift.
Good Morning, We're starting today off with partly cloudy skies, but views north toward the Cumberlands remain unobstructed. Our high temperature yesterday was 62 with a low only of 40. There isn't much snow left around camp, and it's possible the very last of it goes away by this afternoon. There's been rumors of rain chances, but we'll wait to see it come to fruition and continue to enjoy these clear days we've managed to string together.
An interesting find by Matt earlier this week.
We have a very active crew to start the year, constantly exploring the mountain when any available moment presents itself. I wanted to share our very own Matt Manfredi's find a few days ago during the snow event. He was out on The Boulevard where it circles around Myrtle Point and paused to appreciate the ice forming off of the Dwarf Rhododendron leaves. They take on the appearance of blown glass because of their clarity and spiral effect. Likely a result of the changeover from rain to snow that occurred before we tallied 8" of snow. Enjoy!
