What a glorious day on the mountain. The air is crisp and the sky is clear. I included a panorama from yesterday's sunrise. The low last night was 41º with a high of 63º. It is currently 53º. Chris and I are hiking down in a little while. I love commuting on days like this. It is the commutes during high winds and hail that I am not so fond of. Luckily, the sunny days are more common. I hope this weather lasts through the weekend. If it is does, I highly recommend a hike up to the lodge. We are coming up on my favorite time of the season. I love September. I tell people that September on the mountain is like October in the lower elevation. We don't have a lot of foliage that changes color, but the rain dries up and the air is crisp with that fall feeling. Not to mention blackberry season. That is coming up soon. Oh yeah, one more thing, GO VOLS! (Sorry, I had to get that in.)
