We've already received brief moments of rain this morning, but nothing along the lines of a bonafide soaker. The second half of July has certainly been hotter and drier than the way we started, so we're appreciative of any liquid precipitation we can muster. There was no new precipitation yesterday, and Wednesday's temperature readings came in at 71 degrees for a high, and 48 for a low.
We've been mostly cloudy much of the day, with views into the valley rolling in and out. At least this overcast is keeping things a tad cooler for us, which I'm sure folks hiking up from the flat lands are enjoying to the max. Speaking of which, there are already crowds forming around camp, so it looks like it'll be a busy day on the mountain. This year's shirts are selling fast, so be sure and hike up to get your's soon while so many color choices are in stock!
As mentioned in yesterday's post, the temperatures look quite promising through the weekend. We'd be delighted to see you if a visit to Mt. LeConte is a possibility.
And a special thanks to Uncle Gary for his assistance with a routine maintenance project!
Take care and happy trails.
