Its a fine, crystal clear morning at LeConte. Valley lights twinkle below and the colors are forming over high top. The high yesterday only reached 10 degrees. The overnight low dipped down to 3 degrees. It’s currently 4 degrees with light winds racing through camp. We received 0.10” precipitation and 1” of new snow bringing our snow depth to 17”. All roads leading LeConte are not accessible at this time which means I have the mountain to myself. Sun returns today with warmer temperatures. It’s going to be a great day on the mountain. Have a great day folks.
Snow, Snow and more Snow! The drifts around camp are insanely deep. One could be buried up to their waist or more. Winds pushed hard again last night packing more snow in these areas. Trails are in great shape other than just snowy so, traction isn’t needed in these conditions. Skiing and snowshoeing was high on the agenda. It was a great day yesterday to enjoy the abundance of snow. I am happy that I finally got my wish with a big snowfall before the season ends. Well, the mountain is calling. I set off for sunrise. See you at the top!
