We’re deep into summer now, and the extended forecast looks like there’s no end in sight to these hot and humid days. The mountain has had the benefit of clouds clinging to the summit to help keep things slightly cooler. As long as that continues, Mt. LeConte will be a great place to escape the 90-100° temps lingering below. There is a chance for pop-up showers around dinner time today, but the rest of the day ought to be a mix of clouds and sun. We’ll continue to see lodge high temps in the upper 60s.
In a normal year, yesterday would have marked the halfway point of the lodge season, spanning from when the crew hikes up in mid March til closing day right before Thanksgiving. Since we were able reopen our doors two months ago, the time has just flown by. We’re incredibly thankful for everyone who has taken the time and energy to visit the lodge or stay with us, even in such unusual times. Our crew continues to work hard for our guests, even with the various changes, and looks forward to serving you to the best of their abilities these remaining four months of the 2020 season.
Have a great start to the week. Stay safe and stay cool!
