Our last weekend on the mountain has started out picture worthy. Chris is in the kitchen flipping his last pancakes. Tim is on his way up the mountain to finish out the season. I told Chris he would always have a job in one of the many pancake houses around town. He certainly knows how to make pancakes. He decided he did not want to pursue that line of work. Instead we are staying around the Gatlinburg/ Knoxville area and dabbling in the specialty food market and furniture business. In the spirit of keeping the blog about this beautiful mountain, that is all I will say. In this day and age of information being at our fingertips, I am sure you will be able to find us.
The trails are still very icy. Many of our guests said they would have turned around had it not been for the ice traction they had for their boots. Please, make sure you are prepared. The high did reach 34 yesterday, but the low was 21. The ice has not had a chance to melt. Please be careful out there and make sure you drink plenty of water. Dehydration can happen in the colder months as well.
One last note, please play nice on the comment section. There are only a couple of rules. 1.) keep the comments about the lodge, mountain, and trails. 2.) Be respectful of others. 3. ) Just ignore the trolls, when they are trolls. Our filters do not let us block anyone or make you fill out a form of any kind. Remember, some comments may be for those of us on the mountain and you may not understand them, but we do. Please, be kind, and keep you comments on point. Happy Hiking and hope to see you at the top.
