People often ask the crew what we do during time off while on the mountain. I usually tell them we enjoy what the mountain has to offer. Remember when you were a kid and how much fun it was to explore? We get to do that on top of Mt. LeConte. It makes the job even more enjoyable to have access to such an amazing mountain. I love to discover new places I have not been before. Yesterday was yet another great day to do so. The high reached 51 with low around 26. Winter is trying to hold on. I hope to get out today and see how the wildflowers are holding up. I will keep you posted.
