Today's post is going to be a little different. I just wanted to remind everyone about our online store. If you have a family member who loves Mt. LeConte, we have some great options for Christmas gifts. Don't worry, you don't have to hike five miles to do your Christmas shopping. We will mail it to you. While you're at it, throw a pair of our toasty flannel pants into the cart for your Christmas morning outfit. I bought a pair and they are awesome. We have everything from fleece jackets and vests to a really nice jacket that is wind proof and water resistant. I actually own the jacket and have used it for hiking. I will say that I am a fan. Don't forget the groovy tie dye LeConte shirt that you can not purchase at the lodge. You can buy one to wear while your "I hiked it" shirt is being washed.
As for lodge news, we are starting with a sunny morning. It is still cold up here. The low was 20º with a high of 39º. The weather forecast is calling for snow this weekend. We could have a white ending to the season.
I have one request. I would love to hear from you about what you would like to see in our store. This includes our online store and our store at the lodge. We are looking for ideas and would love to hear yours.
