Good (almost) afternoon from a slightly chilly mountain top! Yesterday stayed cool for the most part with the high only reaching 59 and the low down to 40. We had thunder rolling through camp all day and heavy showers through the late afternoon and into the evening, leaving us with .62" of rain. Even as we were ringing the bell for dinner, Leconte Falls (the steps in front of the dinning room) was flowing freely from a sudden storm. But low and behold, as the last cookie was finished and the dishes where done, one of the most unique and beautiful sunsets broke through the clouds and set the sky on fire...I love the way the mountain says goodnight.
