The mountain is socked in with heavy fog. Temperatures aren’t terrible this morning. No winds are pushing through camp. The high temperature yesterday reached 31 degrees. The overnight low only dropped down to 19 degrees. It is currently 21 degrees. No precipitation was recorded. No new snow was recorded. Current snow depth around 8”. Roads still remain closed. Haven’t had any day hikers on the mountain in 6 days. Very quite!! Weekend forecast looks fantastic weather to be on LeConte. Crampons will be needed once they open roads and hikers flock to the trailheads below. Have a good one!
Very relaxing day spent yesterday. Ate well, hiked around. Just mesmerized by the beauty this mountain holds. Heavy cloud inversion for last night’s sunset. Clingmans was poking out to say hello to LeConte. Always a treat experiencing an inversion up here. Hope your able to come up and enjoy one folks. SEE YOU AT THE TOP!
