Answers to questions!
Hello my friends! This is Luke here. First and foremost, we apologize for not being able to reply to your comments. The connection is very spotty up here. SO, I am going to start off by answering a few from yesterday.
Yes, we will post more crew interviews. (I know you all are dying to know more about me)
Elktonbrandt- I was able to find the elusive creature we call "Justin" and ask him, Paper or Plastic? He said he's more of a paper fan.
Mrs. Mooring- Your son is one heck of a runner! And unfortunately the cornbread recipe is highly classified but I will say, it does require one cup of love.
Alayna- 7 and 8 are perfect ages to start introducing the joys of hiking! Especially a hike to LeConte.
Tammy(Tx)- There's 11 of us employed here but usually there's a few of us down the mountain for days off.
The high yesterday was 70 degrees and the low last night was 49.
Now, since I'm writing the blog today I want to ask all my phellow Phish peeps two questions. Because I can.
What's your favorite show and why?
How do you think their new album, Big Boat, will compare to their most previous ones like Fuego?
"It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves"- Edmund Hillary
Jess is back and cooking up a storm!
We are enjoying this glorious weather up here, partially sunny 62/49 weather with the deer hanging out quite a bit.
Justin is avoiding our questioning and we are having difficulty obtaining answers.
Should we continue our perusal of Justin or would you like to hear from another crew member?
Or do you have some questions from us you would like answered?
Leave comments below and let us know what you would like to hear from us!
Hello everybody! Recently I've been thinking a lot about humans role in the environment and how we should respond to certain global issues in the world. I've come across a theory called Biophilia coined by Harvard professor and sociobiologist EO Wilson where he describes biophilia as "the connection that humans subconsciously seek with the rest of life". Because of technological advancement maybe we are disconnecting more from nature where we are constantly finding ourselves indoors for the majority of the day or in cars. Is there a way in our modern way of life to become more biophilic in our design of cities and materials, education system, or even our thoughts toward one another? In the end, just like what our LeConte shirts read, "nature is not just a place to visit it is home". What do you all think?
The low last night dipped to 49 and the current temp is 61.9 with cloudy skies. Enjoy the day!
Interview Time: Part 1
Positive-Vibe Warrior here! Sun's out and it's slowly starting to feel like fall up here. The llamas are here and seem to be enjoying the cool mountain air.
Yesterdays high was 65 degrees and last nights low was 47 degrees.
I'd like to take this time to interview my roommate Justin to better figure out who this guy really is.
Q: Favorite color?
A: Clear (What does that even mean)
Q: Dogs or cats?
Q: Weapon of choice in a zombie apocalypse?
Q: Favorite sport?
In his natural habitat
An apple a day keeps the doctor away
Positive-Vibe Warrior Luke here and man let me tell ya, I ate a really good apple today! So good, that I broke out into a dance. I encourage everyone to eat one at some point today. We've been loving all the goodies you have been hiking up here for the crew. You guys are awesome.
Yesterdays high was 70 degrees and last nights low was 52 with rain.
33 more days until my hockey team, the preds, kick off their new season against our rival (the Blackhawks booooo) AND I'm seeing my favorite band, Phish, play in my favorite city of Charleston on the same day. The wait is KILLING me.

9.10.16. Sun days and more sun
After a fabulous 69/52 day with mostly sun and a cool breeze we are experiencing more of the same today!
Keep an eye out for bears while hiking up!
Llamas come up Friday, let us know if any trees are down on Trillium Gap!
Ice cream goodness
Hello down there LeConte lovers! Today we had an unexpected delivery of Ben and Jerrys ice cream from a gentleman named Thomas from the Woody party. It was brick solid when delivered even after hiking up Alum! Thanks so much for your kind hospitality and all the other individuals out there have given us candy/food/good vibes over the course of the season. Our crew is happy! The weather today has been pretty clear and the current temperature is 66.1 and the low last night was 51. The llamas came up with Alan today or maybe Alan brought the llamas up, either way. Have a good day and get outside!
71/46 were the temps for yesterday, sunny, clear, and Pauleen spent all day doing nothing.
She wishes that today's partially clear weather wouldn't have such a chilly breeze, but who knows what tomorrow will be like.
The llama boys are coming up tomorrow so be sure to say Hi to Mr. Alan!
We are loving the weather up here!
68/46 were our temps for yesterday and you can really tell fall is on its way.
Keep an eye out for bears while hiking up and take time to admire the grassus Parnassus down on Trillium and Alum.
This is the last month that the ACE crew and trail crew will be hanging out up here! They will still be working on the rail though, If you see them give them a big thank you!
llamas on Friday!
Smells like fall spirit
It's starting to smell like a lot like Autumn!
Make sure you pack layers, it sure is getting chilly up here.
We had a lovely 68/46 day of mostly sun with a beautiful sunset.
Llamas are coming up tomorrow!
