It’s currently 32 degrees and Cloudy on Mount Le Conte. The winds have died down giving the mountain a comfortable mean temperature.
With these warmer temperatures, I’d expect the remaining snow to soften and dwindle, creating slick icy conditions in the higher elevations. Please, plan ahead and prepare for your journey up.

Moving through the forest, I pondered the uncertainty of sunrise. Last nights show had been canceled by a wall of swirling clouds. What would today bring? I had tickets and didn’t dare give up my front row seats. Approaching the overlook, the curtain lay ajar. Curious, I soon realized that this would be part of the show. In fact, the billows above had the potential to become the main event. Eager and caffeinated, my gaze held onto the horizon. The sun made it’s entrance, the show was beginning…
Speechless, I scrabbled for words - alas, there were none to be had.
