Sounds like it’s a gorgeous day everywhere around us, but in typical Mt. LeConte fashion, the clouds seem to have an attachment to the summit. Hopefully they shake off and visitors are greeted with bluebird skies upon their arrival. Temps have been in the 60s, so it’s going to be another comfortable afternoon on the mountain. Any precip chances remain quite low. Winds have been a bit more active since yesterday evening.
Hikers visiting the lodge now have access to the exterior balcony of our Office building. Please pay close attention to the signage, as this remains a modified visitor experience. Folks looking to enjoy the balcony must still respect safe social distancing practices. As we can see hundreds of visitors in any given afternoon, the balcony will be standing room only at this time so that the multitude of visitors to the lodge all receive a fair chance at getting to enjoy the views over camp. Thank you.

After 25 years, my wife and I made our last trio to the lodge a couple of years ago. Now in our mid 70s, my knees aged out along with her desire to "climb it one more itme". But that's ok. We have a quarter century of memories. I would especially miss the deck at the office so I hope the restrictions don't happen for long. It was one of those wonderful rewards for several hours of toil. Do not ever change the experience (with the possible exception of, when possible, the addition of a huge communal hot tub. I would pay extra for that!!)
