Oh my, I did not expect to wake up this morning to 25º. It seems on this 4th day of October, fall has left us and made way for Old Man Winter. The high yesterday was 59º. I had a hard time believing folks when they said be prepared for snow, but I am starting to wonder. With only 53 days left in the season, I guess winter is closer than I want it to be.
I keep seeing my little rabbit friend around camp. This makes me happy. Our first season on the mountain, we saw rabbits every where. They seemed to disappear the next season. We figured a predator moved in over the winter and helped themselves to our rabbit population. We have not seen many over the last 12 years. It was a delight to see our little friend and several more over the last couple of weeks. I just hope another predator does not move in over the winter. It reminds me how much this mountain can change from season to season. I guess that is why so many people come back year after year. Their visits are always different. There are a lot of things that remain a constant on the mountain, but there are plenty of things that change and make each trip a different experience.
I want to take a minute to remind everyone, 2015 is just around the corner. If you have not ordered your 2015 LeConte Calendar, make sure you do so. You can enjoy images from your favorite mountain as you jot down your hectic schedule. Hopefully the photos will bring a smile to your face and peace to your soul. The calendars are available on our website. Just click on the link and it will take you to our online store.
