It looks like a beautiful sunny morning on Mt LeConte. The temperature at 7:00 AM was 18 degrees. Right now we have a beautiful blue cloudless sky with the sun shining brightly and no wind! However, the rangers are predicting a high wind warning for this evening with winds in excess of 70 mph. If Highway 441 should reopen today, the high wind warnings would close it again.
The trails should be in pretty good shape today with about four inches of dry powder at higher elevations. I came up Rainbow Falls yesterday with no problems.
I guess that I’ll be spending most of my time today shoveling and sweeping snow off of steps and decks. I hope that you can enjoy the beautiful weather today!
