Quite the foggy start to the weekend this morning. Yesterday's high was 63 and the low was 43. Right now we are stuck in a cloud and the temperature is 56. We have rain in the forecast today, so everyone be aware! Also, Alum Cave is open for the weekend! Everyone have a pleasant day and we will see you up top!

One of my favorite pictures....because I know I'm close when I get to this spot on the trail.

Yes, you know you are close when you see this sight. Having been up a few times, when I see the log steps at the top of Monotony Ridge I know the hard part is behind me

Love the photo of Thursdays sunrise. I was fortunate enough to see it in person from Myrtle Point! We woke up at 5:00 am to make it there about 40 prior to the actual sunrise and watch the sky light up with an amazing display of colors. Another wonderful trip to the lodge made even more special as it was my daughter's birthday. The cake and chorus of "Happy Birthday" by staff and guest were truly the icing on a memorable visit. We were part of a group guided by A Walk In The Woods. I can't say enough good things about Sam our guide and the whole experience. They have a couple more later this year if anyone is trying to get a nights stay and learn more about the flora and fauna of this great park. We even ran into a bear during our descent on Bull Head.

Thanks for the info! Maybe I'll try it some day. Love the pictures that have been posted from this stretch of alum. I think I've saved every one. Hope to see it in person later this year!
Ruthie,are you handling the Guest Sightings like Allyson changed them to last yr?? I have looked nearly ever day and it has been that same pic.for months.Personally I like the way they were done in the yrs.past .Pictures of people,groups etc.are really good and seeing where they come from and especially when it is your state and you try to see if you know any of them.LOL That is my opinion and you know ever one has ONE!!!!!!

May 15, 2015, is a day I'll never forget. My dad, Sylvester, turned 80 this year and all he wanted for his birthday was to hike to the top of Mt. Le Conte. It was his first hike! The two of us hiked to the top on the Alum Cave Trail stopping along the way to take in the great views, had lunch at the Lodge, got to see the llamas, and made it down where we celebrated with a big BBQ dinner. He certainly deserved it! Thanks for making a lasting memory!
