It’s currently 36 degrees and partly cloud with an inversion up top. We received .72” inches of precipitation yesterday. There are still trace amounts of snow on the ground. Expect some ice on the trails if you're coming up top today.
Suddenly the weather changed its mind. Half of the clouds ascended toward heaven; the others decided to dwell down in the valley. In the middle, Mount Le Conte smiled happily with clear skies.
Grinning, I watched as yesterday’s cumulus clouds transformed into wispy tails high in the atmosphere. The last the of the evening stars twinkled good morning as they disappeared for the day. Wind growled in the distance - the mountain worked in my defense, leaving Apollo Overlook quiet and calm. What else would the mountain show me this year? There wasn’t much time; yet, I had all the time in the world…
If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and adore.
