Greetings valley dwellers! Fall is quickly approaching! The temperatures are dropping, the leaves and moss are changing, and the mountain ash are blooming. Before you know it the pumpkin spice everything will be hitting the shelves down there and the Halloween stores will be popping up all over your city. I don't know about you but I am PUMPED. Fall is a beautiful season, especially up here on the mountain. We have our friends with St. Jude and the Church of the Good Shepherd up here staying tonight! They have been staying at the lodge for many years and include guests from all over the state of Tennessee. It's still misty and frigid at the lodge, with more cold and wet weather to come. Rain gear and warm jackets for the top are a must. Maybe even a blanket and some slippers so you can enjoy your hot chocolate and a rocking chair in complete comfort. The low last night was 52 and the current temperature is 55. Happy hiking! Love, Turnip.
