Nice pictures, it looks like you had a beautiful hike.
Wow what beautiful pictures. What a job you have. How can it get any better. I check daily for your blog. Your in my most favorite place in the world......Stay warm.
Alexander, this must be one heck of a peaceful and exhilarating job you have up there, I would bet that it almost feels like vacation/heaven up there at times.Awesome photos. Thanks for sharing, see you up there soon, i'm sure!
I'm thinking of backpacking up the Alum trail in a few weeks. Assuming the snow is like it is now, what do you recomment for extra footwear? Snowshoes? Microspikes? Cramp-ons?Thanks
Glad to see you had a safe hike. Thanks for all the awesome pics. Take care.
Amazing! Thanks for sharing.
Love the pictures!!Keep them coming. I check this blog everyday. Wish I had your job. Thanks for keeping up the blog.
Amazing pics as always ! Just wondering if you have a hard time staying on the trail with all that snow ? Have a Great day and thanx again alex.
Beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Alex: I share the same sentiment as Patty S.: the Smokies, and especially the lodge, are my favorite place in this world. C'est magnifique ! Telles belles photos de la neige !!
Beautiful...thanks Smoky Mountains are special.
I agree with everyone that you have one of the best jobs in the world. You are very lucky. I am curious to your response to David Barry's post. Thanks for the pictures. Also, did you hike up form Alum in the dark?
Thanks again for letting me enjoy my "happy place". Awesome pics!!!
Alex! You're the man! The pictures are just awesome!
@David Barry,It depends on the conditions. If there is a lot of fresh powder you will want snowshoes. If it has been warm and the snow is packed down and turned to ice, you will want micro-spikes. I always carry my ice walkers this time of year. Snow shoes will just depend on the depth of the snow. I hope this helps. Happy Hiking,Allyson Virden
