We had to wait a little bit longer to get that prolonged sunshine we were hoping for. Yesterday afternoon the rain returned and was a light mist through the night and up til late this morning. We recorded an additional 0.25" of rain before breakfast, plenty to keep surfaces slick if you don't watch your step. Our high yesterday reached 50 degrees, and our low managed to hit 39. The sun is taking control once again and the clouds are breaking up, which has temperatures steadily rising. We are currently in the mid 40s. Tomorrow looks to be shaping up to be a gorgeous day. If you're in the area, consider a trip up Mt. LeConte to make the most of your time here!
Some of you may be wondering why there's a picture of a cake below. Well, you'd be hard pressed to find something that Tim Line has never accomplished up here in his 41+ years leading the lodge. We are all proud to announce that he can include baking a birthday cake to his already impressive resume. Thanks for all your help, Tim! Remember, guests staying with us can request cakes for special occasions by either contacting our office or notifying our cooks before 4:00 PM on the night of your stay.
Take care and happy trails!
