Good Afternoon, East Tennessee got walloped with some storms yesterday, and Mt. LeConte certainly got in on the action. In two short afternoon squalls, the mountain had 1.3" of rain dumped on it, and the drainage ditches around and through camp were overflowing their banks. Trails are sure to be saturated for the time being, so consider waterproof hiking shoes for your trips up and down. At one point the sun was out, allowing us to hit a high temperature of 67 degrees on Saturday. Our low came in at 52. We've been in and out of the clouds most of today, with temperatures hovering in the low 60's. Today's rain chances are lower, but there are a few pop-up showers forming in the park already. We'll see if one nips us to keep our daily precipitation streak alive. Of the coming days, tomorrow appears to be the most favorable for playing in the woods without getting wet. Have a great day.
Plenty of Pink Turtleheads in bloom lining the spring.
