I know but one freedom and that is the freedom of the mind. Saint Exupery
It looks like it will be another beautiful day up top. The skies are clear and the forecast is promising. The high reached 53 degrees yesterday. The low yesterday was 30 degrees and it was 37 degrees and clear at 7am observation.
If I were on the fence about visiting LeConte in the winter months, I'd hike up today. Who knows, it could be the last chance before we get some serious snow... or at least before the holidays. The trails are in great shape for this time of year and as long as you bring the ten essentials, extra food, layers and a headlamp you should be set. Be aware that the sun's been setting around 5:30 and ambient light can bring you home until 6sh. Happy hiking!
Oh, and if anyone is wondering.... Cabot Cheese, Green Mountain Coffee (a darker roast) and a Sunday New York Times would make my weekend! New England nostalgia!
