It was your typical summer day in the Smokies yesterday. Mostly clear conditions to start the day with a strong, sticky dose of that southern humidity. Followed up by the afternoon thunderstorms that help to keep things cool up top. We managed to tap the lower 60s yesterday and not get nearly as toasty as what is being felt in the lowlands of late. Today’s forecast should be much of the same, as scattered showers moving across the state should reach the mountain in the next few hours. Come ready for wet if you are hitting the trail today!
Our team has been working hard to keep things rolling up top and on the trail. We just delivered a fresh supply of our incredibly popular trucker hats to the summit. They are also available online now for anyone who may have missed their chance to purchase one this past weekend. Be sure and check them out, along with all kinds of other great lodge swag, at www.lecontelodge.com/store.
