A Nice 25 and somewhat cloudy out this morning. No Snow Yet, Supposedly coming in later this afternoon. Haven't heard much about the other trails. I hiked down boulevard about 3 miles yesterday, there was ice 5 or 6 inches thick creating a slide down the trail at points, pretty cool! Today I'll be hiking down Alum and back up with a friend. This is from the Boulevard yesterday.
And Yes, I do sing aloud in the kitchen. Running Low on Fresh Veggies!

Alex do you get re-supplied with fresh veggies at any point, or is it dried and canned and frozen food from here on out? What do you eat up there? Love the blog.

Beautiful picture! Thanks for continuing the daily posts. As winter progresses and things slow down for you, would love to hear about any bear encounters you may have experienced--in Smokies or Alaska! Just to see one is so exciting!

Just recently discovered your website. I visit often now to see your newest winter weather shots. In 1996 my then fiance and I hiked to the Lodge via Alum cave while living in Morristown, TN. One of my fondest GSMNP memories. Thanks for what you do.

Just wanted you to know that we lowlanders in NC's central piedmont just finished our first snow of the season! Usually don't get snow in autumn. Just bonding with snowy Mt. LeConte!

I have winter hiked to LeConte Lodge at least twice, and I can't imagine hiking Alum Cave when ice is a factor. There are several places where an ill timed slip could be a disaster. If I am not mistaken, the park service had to haul someone out of there this season already, although I don't know if snow/ice was a factor.
