Kicking off the new week with a colorful sunrise, peering north toward the horizon between cloud layers. We managed to dodge all the rain showers yesterday, but we may not be so lucky today with stronger percentages firing up around lunchtime. Temps should once again reach the mid 60s, and there’s a slight breeze currently adding a slight upper elevation chill to the air.
These cloud formations this time of year just make for some of the most spectacular sunsets. Even the crew has been taking note of late, jumping at the opportunity to grab their cameras and race up to Cliff Tops for some memorable moments. It was interesting to watch a small storm cell sweep over central Sevier County before sunset last night from our dry vantage point. Even from a relatively short distance as the crow flies, at the lodge one could see the entire cloud from base to anvil top, as well as where the rain started and ended with light on all sides. Not a bad way to let the mind unwind after a solid day’s work.
