Good morning and welcome to the start (officially) of the 2015 LeConte Lodge season! We were so ahead of schedule by yesterday with all of our opening tasks that we ended up with a whole day off to relax and hike. It was both odd and wonderful to have an entire day on the mountain void of responsibility and practically alone at the lodge. This morning the weather is looking great for hiking! Our high yesterday was 51 with a low of 31, we had 2.3" of precipitation and even had a few snow showers around dusk last night. But there is no snow on the ground today, just blue skies! It is a bit chilly this morning, around 36, so don't forget your layers of course. Also, a reminder that Trillium Gap is still closed to the public (although the llamas will be up tomorrow for their first trip of the season!).
Alright, ya'll, hold on to your hats because this is the beginning of a brand new season- in more ways than one. It is going to be amazing.
