Happy Easter from the top of Mt. LeConte. It is starting out to be a beautiful day. The rain yesterday did not keep the hikers away. The mountain was super busy with hikers. They were hanging out around the heaters and enjoying a hot cup of cocoa. We heard accents from all over the world. That is one of the coolest aspects to this job. You get to meet people from so many countries. Yesterday we had Germany, Canada, and South Korea represented. Mt. Leconte brings so many people together. You never know who you are going to meet on the top. Yesterday's wet weather brought .42" of rain with a high of 44º and a low of 32º. I believe we are going to see warmer weather today along with a visit from our star in the sky, the sun. I am looking forward to soaking up some vitamin D and recharging for the next week.
