As you have probably guessed, Alex is down the mountain and enjoying the holidays. I received some pictures from our infamous Ranger Dave Worth. He and a friend were brave enough to break trail to the lodge. He said there was about a foot of snow with snow drifts up to mid thigh level. Our substitute winter caretaker was getting a few visitors today. Dave said he ran into several parties on the trail. Folks if you are contemplating a trip up the mountain, please make sure you are an experiences hiker and have the gear for it. Make sure someone knows you are on the trail and when you are supposed to return.
Welcome to the LeConte Lodge blog. We hope you enjoy the information we provide to make your trip to the lodge the best it can be.
