It was another beautiful day on LeConte. The high was 37. The low was 21. It was 33 and clear at observation. The ice on Alum is still rather treacherous, so be sure to use caution.
Please remember to use the Park Service's reservation system. It is a violation of Park policy to tent camp in the 'backcountry' on Mt. LeConte. You need a backcountry permit to stay in the shelter. That is the only place to stay on Mt. LeConte while the lodge is CLOSED. If I'm being redundant, it's because people are being ignorant, stubborn, lazy, obstinate or some wonderful combination of the previously mentioned uniquely human qualities.
