Have a Great Memorial Day Weekend
I took a little break from work and made a trip out to Myrtle Point to admire the sand myrtle. They were in full glory. It was a nice way to bask in the sun for a few minutes and take in the butterflies and flowers. I soaked up enough vitamin D to help me through this weekend. We had a house full of teenagers last night which was a reminder that school is out and families are going to start making their way to the lodge. You could hear the kids playing games in the office and laughter through out camp. Just the way it supposed to be. It is great to witness the lodge bringing so much happiness to all age groups. There are so many wonderful memories that are made around this mountain top. Our interpretive ranger, Mark Pitt, is back for another season. He comes up Thursday-Saturday and gives some great talks about the wildlife and history of Mt. LeConte. We wish we could keep him seven days a week, but the park service thinks he deserves a few days off during the week. As do we, he works non stop while up here. We will enjoy his knowledge while we have it. I hope everyone has a safe Memorial Day Weekend. If you are heading our way, happy hiking and see you on the top.

Great photo. I generally don't go for effects added to photos, but this really sets off the picture. It looks like the front cover of a professionally done card. Most of your photos are fantastic. Thanks for taking the time to shoot and share!

Hope the skies are clear tonight. The meteor shower could be a nice event for the night!

I can't imagine a better spot for viewing the meteor shower.

Does the ranger hike up daily?

Missy, the ranger does not hike up daily, he stays up there for his work week.
