We are resupplied and good to go until the end of the season, which is only 25 days. Not that I am counting or anything. It was a cold day yesterday. The high was only 47. Last nights low was 35. The sunrise was great this morning. You could see the city lights twinkling while the sun was coming up. Sevierville had a small strip of cloud that made it a neat site. I have been asked about winter plans. I can tell you that as different as the crew is, so are their winter plans. Some of the crew are thinking about what to do after being up here. They are considering working on a ski slope, being a horse wrangler in another national park, hiking, working, and Chris and I are planning on working on our house that we bought a year and a half ago. It takes a little while to get back in the swing of being in the "real" world. Remembering you can actually turn on a light in a room, instead of lighting lanterns. I enjoy having a bathroom inside. I also enjoy having ice cubes in my drinks. I tend to go a little crazy on that one. It is nice to be in the "land of plenty", as we refer to it on the mountain. By February, I am ready to return to my little mountain home.
