It’s currently 21 degrees and partly cloudy up top. We received no precipitation. It is getting cold once again!
24 hour temperature range: High 40 Low 16
The silence is palpable - you can hear the mountain holding its breath. Moving up the trail, remembering to breath, you listen intently to the mountain. Unable to stand it, a nearby branch breaks under the pressure. You continue on. The shelter comes into view, golden light decorates the tree tops. You can’t help but smile - it’s an allergic reaction of sorts.
There is work to do - you should go back. The world is patiently waiting down below. Like a mischievous child, the smile breaks free again. You wander further down the trail, bathing in the etherial light. Just a little longer, you decide…
You’ll stay out just a little longer.
The true delight is in the finding out rather than in the knowing.

It’s still a few days away but the predictions look like a fairly significant snow event this weekend, “Sporty Weather” as we say on the coast. Good luck, stay warm and I’m sure the LeConte daily post community are looking forward to your photos .
