We are planning on introducing Ruthie to the blog over the next couple of days. It is time to get her acquainted with the blog family. I have a favor to ask of you all. High On LeConte has several different contributors. We all have different styles and gifts to bring to the blog. It is perfectly normal that you will each have your desired blogger. With this being said, please be aware that the bloggers read the comments. This blog is a part of our job and we are trying to perform our duties the best that we can. Please be kind and understanding that each and everyone of us is different and we hope to offer you a different experience. I thank you in advance for your kindness and understanding.
One last thing to address. This blog is designed to share the everyday happenings around the lodge and to let people know any issues that have been reported to us. Our number one priority is hiker safety. The advice we give is for the novice hiker and anyone looking for trail information. Three quarters of our visitors to the mountain would fall under these definitions. We are the ones putting our lives on the line when someone needs to be rescued. Please remember, what you consider to not be dangerous, may be dangerous for others. If we can keep one person from being injured because we shared information that was passed on to us, then it was worth it. It is up to each person to use this information as they see fit.
I hope everyone has a great day and is able to get out and enjoy this amazing weather. Happy Hiking.
