It’s currently clear with almost not wind. Mountain LeConte is experiencing is in a spring mood today with a balmy temperature of 36 degrees.
It should be another gorgeous day, but I would still recommend warm layers if you plan on making it up to the higher elevations.

The rich aroma of fresh brewed coffee powered me toward the rising sun. What would the day bring? I let the thought come in one here and out the other - right now, the moment - was all that mattered. The unlit shadows of the forest gazed at me with interest. I returned the gaze and continued toward the point.
Arriving at my destination, the mountains shared a one of kind surprise. My eyes feasted on the boiling bowl of clouds as they poured over Charlies Bunion. I closed my eyes, the flavors were too rich. How could a man ever look at the world the same again? It couldn't be done.

Looks like a stormy day somewhere in the Pacific Ocean!

Wow! Number. 388 walked em all. Brings back precious memories to a 76 year old, bin there done that. If God will let me, I will see it again. No way to describe the glory of a sunrise when walking 25 miles unstop from Newfound Gap in one day to the Cosby Tenn. Campground. All I can say to describe it is leaving out at four in the morning on top of the world you will see a small glimpse of what Heaven will be. WOW!!!!

I look at LeConte from a window far away. Glad that it is still there I can again celebrate sunrise.
