April.9.2016. And it's frozen
It's cold up here guys!
The day was 25 and overcast with off and on snow flurries that very few chose to meander through.
It was 15 last night!15! And windy!
The llamas braved yesterday's cold without their full coats and we were glad to see them.
Please remember to respect reserved parking spaces in the Trillium parking lot and to leave space for the llamas to load up!
Pack in layers! Pack waterproof! Bring gaiters! Bring micro spikes!
It's cold up here!

There are 4-6 of my family planning a day hike to Mt. Leconte in July. We've done this twice before. I want to do it again before...we hike up Alum Cave and go down Rainbow falls. On one of the hikes we got to see how big a black bears backside is on a narrow trail. After that we carried sticks to make a little noise. The other hikes we hiked back into Gatlinburg. This time we have some transportation available for pickup in the Rainbow falls parking lot.

I thought it looked like the llamas had a "burrrr" haircut! Haha! I bet they are thinking let's get this work day wrapped up so we can get back in the barn! Along with "where's the pancakes"? And, I hope I never get to see a bear's backside on a trail....or from its front side or profile either, ever! I'm wishing for ya'll to get a little warmer weather up there! Have a great weekend!

Seeing the llamas in the snow reminded me of my first overnight trip to the Lodge. We hiked up in snow, rain, and sleet, temps getting into the 50's, and the next morning the ground was covered with snow and ice and it was 13 degrees. When Ryn R. says bring traction devices, and winter apparel, take her seriously. Even in April.
