Hello down there LeConte lovers! Fall is finally here which means it time for pumpkins, spiced lattes, ciders, and the colorful reds, yellows, and oranges of the leaves. The mountain ash has finally bursted in all its glory up on the mountain. Today for our Sunday dinner Matt made 8 homemade pizzas and they were quite delicious. Everything from pepperoni to supremes. Wooo! As a crew we are looking forward to Halloween and the remaining two months on the mountain. Today we had a rain shower for a couple of hours which was much needed since things have been quite dry. The low last night was 47F with a high of 71F today. We have not seen any cloud inversions down below yet which is characteristic of fall weather.
This quote seems comically appropriate for the season: "I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than, than be crowded on a velvet cushion" Henry David Thoreau
Happy hiking and looking forward to seeing you when you get up here!
