The sun is trying to peek through the heavy cloud coverage. It could be a great day up top. No matter the weather, the hikers have been making their way up our beloved mountain. We have seen an influx in families over the past couple of weeks. I love seeing young kids running around camp and exploring what Mt. LeConte has to offer. I like to think that at least one of the kids that makes the hike will turn out to be a park ranger, park biologist, or at least a member of the 2024 LeConte crew. We had another wet day yesterday. The high was 58º with a low of 45º. The sky let loose on us several times through out the day. All of this rain has turned the mountain top a lush green.
