Just thought I'd mention that the quality of blog posts have improved exponentially this year as compared to last. Keep up the good work, LL.
I disagree. They crew has so many responsibilities with their guests that they have less time to maintain the blog site.
Please tell us what happened on Alum yesterday. Both the cause and the nature of the rescue. We will be up in AUG with kids. My recommendation is Rainbow/Bullhead, but I'd think we'd all be a bit smarter about what we are doing if we had some facts. Obviously we don't need names.
I agree with Twistyp. Most entertaining!!!
May Herbert II enjoy his journey wherever the wind takes him... with this storm system Herbert II may have a caught a gust and ended up with JP in New Hampshire!
One wind-related hiking tip that I learned from a former crew member sometime in the last decade was to crouch low during a strong gust. That way you have less surface area for a gust to catch you and knock you off your feet.
Morning all, watch out for the widow makers, especially if you're hiking alone.
Thank you to the crew at LeConte! -- we arrived past dinner on Tuesday night after taking Trillium with two hungry kiddos on our two-night stay. The staff at LeConte took time to set up dinner for us despite our late arrival after everyone has finished eating and clean-up had already started. We were so appreciative of their accommodation of our late arrival. We felt so welcomed!
sure to take the short hikes to Myrtle Point and Clifftops.
