Its a another fine morning on everyone’s favorite mountain. The colder air moved in yesterday making our temperatures feel much cooler than my previous day. The high reached 33 degrees with an overnight low of 18 degrees. It is currently 22 degrees with crystal clear skies and calm winds. Trails should be in good shape but with the drop in temps may have some slick spots so tread carefully! Today looks to be warmer with abundant sunshine so pack those sunglasses. Possible snow is in the forecast for later this week so stay tuned. Have a great day!
My legs were feeling my run/hike out on the Boulevard from the previous day. I was due for a relaxing day on the mountain. Looked like most of the valley was experiencing cloudy weather while we were above the clouds in our own world of sunshine. The heavy cloud cover layered everything around Cliff Tops. Clingmans would peak out every so often. Such a sight to see the inversions. The winter gives some of the most crystal clear views I have ever witnessed on the mountain which I have lived through all season on LeConte. With the day moving on I had such an amazing lunch with fresh cheese my momma sent with me from Christmas. Thanks Ma! With the evening upon me I retired to my cozy cabin for the night. See you at the top!
