Meet Alex. He is going to be the winter caretaker for the next 3 1/2 months. The crew will hike down Wednesday and Alex will begin sharing the mountain with you on Friday. Alex worked as crew in 2008 and part of 2009. He has spent the last 2 years on the seasonal staff for Camp Denali in Denali National Park. He is looking forward to his time at LeConte this winter.
Yesterdays weather was excellent. The high was 43 with a low of 37. It looks like we will be getting another nice day today. We are hoping this weather will last long enough to get us down the mountain on Wednesday.
