The last full day of the season. It is kind of like Christmas eve when you are five. The day seems to last forever and you can 't stand it because you want tomorrow morning to get here quickly. The crew is all giddy and ready for their "summer" break. We had a great season and we have a at least half of the crew returning next season. It has been fantastic seeing all of the guests on the mountain this year. I have enjoyed my interactions with all of you on the blog. Thank you for tuning in and staying in touch. I look forward to my return in March. I may surprise you and hijack Alex's post every now and again. I will let you know if Chris and I do any cool hikes in the Smokies this winter. Take care and have a wonderful holiday and safe winter.
