It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. I suspect the trails will be busy with hikers getting out to enjoy this perfect autumn day. I guess it might not as busy considering the college football game that is happening in Knoxville. It is a tough day on the mountain. Thank goodness all of our Alabama fans are on days off. Just kidding Jeanie and Ruthie, but I am a Bama girl with orange blood and a VOL heart. I would imagine this will be one of the games we listen to on our radio in the kitchen.
Yesterday's temperatures were a bit extreme. We went from 58º, during the day, to 32º last night. The cooler weather has made for some great views. I keep hoping to see the northern lights one last time before I leave. Chris and I have had the pleasure of seeing them twice in our twelve years. They were a faint glimpse of what they are up north, but I still think it is cool that we saw them in Tennessee.
Time to go make a ton of hot chocolate. Today is going to be filled with tons of laughter and comradery between fellow hikers. Happy Hiking.
