I was standing on the porch of the office, after the deluge on Sunday, and was taking in how green everything is after heavy rains. I was also noticing the difference in camp and how the fraser firs seem to be making a come-back. The firs that Chris replanted from the helicopter pad seem to be doing so well. It will be nice to come back in thirty years and see a totally different camp. And yes, I said come back. I don't think I will still be at the lodge in thirty years. I do, however, think I will still be making the trek to stay on top of my favorite mountain.
As I sit here and type, the sun is coming out. We had on and off sunshine yesterday. The high was 57º with a low of 44º. The fog has lifted this morning and I am looking at blue skies. Looks like it is going to be a stellar day up top.
Now, I have an exciting announcement. LeConte Lodge is happy to announce that we are finally putting together a calendar with photos from the lodge and different trails. We are hoping to have them finished by the middle of summer and available for purchase on our website. I will let you know how the progress is going and when they will be available.
Welcome to the official blog of LeConte Lodge. We hope you find the information provided here both helpful and enjoyable. Thank you for visiting the site, and we hope to see you on the mountain!
Please note the the lodge is closed for the winter. Doors reopen March 25, 2024.
