It's been an exceptionally warm and sunny day here in East Tennessee. Temperatures at the lodge got up to 48 degrees yesterday, with an overnight low of 42. Some rain clouds came through and dropped 0.4" of liquid precipitation on the mountain. At the llama farm and reservations office, temps have been hovering in the mid 70's...balmy! One can look around and already see the first of the year's Daffodils ready to pop.
With the steady rains of late, trails to the lodge are sure to be soggy. Fortunately, one won't have to worry about snow and ice for the time being. While Seth is away from the mountain a couple days, we'll work to keep readers up to speed with conditions up top.
In anticipation of the coming season, we're already taking steps to improve and enhance the guest experience, which includes revamping this very blog. Take a look at some of the updated tabs above where we've added valuable information for our guests and followers. It is our goal to get visitors as well equipped as possible for future trips to the lodge, while also helping to satisfy our readers' thirst for knowledge describing their favorite mountain. Enjoy and keep an eye out for more!
Have a great rest of the day.
