It feels great to be back on my favorite mountain. I tried to capture an amazing double rainbow from the beach, if you look hard enough maybe you will see it. I have been looking at it all morning trying to warm up. I awoke to a cold 38 degrees. It is a big difference from being in the 80's for the past week. The temperatures on the mountain have been in the high 50s during the day to the high 30s at night. Fall is on its way. I spent the first part of my time off on a four day backpacking trip on the AT in the park. It was amazing. I did see some patches of fall. I believe fall is going to hit us early in the Smokies.
If you are staying with us over the next few weeks, remember to bring layers of clothing. You will need some warm clothing at night. The days are beautiful. The skies are clearing off and the bright blue skies of September are upon us.
