Our fellow crew member, Bethany, was super excited to have her family make there annual trip up LeConte. They brought 31 people this time, including baby Lily. Lily is Bethany's new niece, as of three months ago. When I walked into the lodge to meet the newest Houghton family member, she was cozy in the hammock they had improvised. I was so impressed I thought we should share it on the blog. Lily was having a good ole' time swinging back and forth. I must say, I was a bit jealous. They had a beautiful day for bringing her up the mountain. The sun was out for the better part of the day. The high yesterday was 65º with a low of 52º. It is currently partly cloudy with a hint of blue sky hanging around.
Happy baby. She was wishing she could get on some of the mashed potatoes.
