Its that time of year when the wildflowers of Mount LeConte are in full bloom. With a mix of purple monks hood and yellow turks cap lily it is certainly a colorful time to visit the lodge. A friendly reminder that many people want to make the journey to see this wonderful flowers so please refrain from picking them. Take with you only pictures. Its another rain free morning but with many rain clouds lingering in the distance we can expect showers later in the afternoon. Yesterday we received 1.6 inches of rain. We did see some high temps yesterday, high coming in at 71 degrees. It is currently 63 degrees and rising. Looking to be another warm day so be sure to pack plenty of water. Last nights low only dropped to 54 degrees.
