Use caution while driving and hiking in these conditions, and pack the appropriate gear for hiking in wind, snow, and rain until the weather clears. Beginning tomorrow afternoon, a return of more seasonably appropriate weather is expected becoming very warm by Wednesday.
Old man winter has a tight grip on Mount LeConte and it doesn't seem like he wants to let go. The mountain is quiet and still today, with temperatures staying in the high teens and snow piling up not even nature is making a sound. Any activity going on here at the summit today seems to be coming from around the heaters and with good reason.
"What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness" -John Steinbeck
