Mid Morning Snack for Llamas
Sorry for the delay today. Sometimes lodge duties can over run us, such as making sure Pete and the other llamas get their pancake dessert. The llamas made it up on this lovely day. They are enjoying hanging out in the sun and eating their alfalfa pellets, llama chow, and pancakes. I think the llama wranglers are just happy to be able to have a normal schedule. It gets tricky dealing with bad weather and making sure the trails are passable.
It is a bit cool up here today. The low last night was 27º. It was a brief shock to the system this morning. The high yesterday was 46º. It is warming up the longer the sun is out. I am hoping we get the warmer temperatures that are supposed to grace the lower elevations this week. We can usually count on being about 20º cooler then the low lands. They are calling for high 70s down there, hopefully that will bring high 50s for us.

:-) looks like the llamas are part of the 'clean plate' club!

What time do the llamas start their trek up the mountain? We are considering sharing their trail this fall and would like to be ahead of them. :)

Trees are green and thick pollen here in s.e. Tn. Also, saw fireflies the other night. Pretty llama pick!

How many days a week do the llamas go to the lodge? They are so adorable:)

LOVE todays photo. Would a group hike to the top be something that anyone might be interested in, this spring? I could maybe start a topic on the forum page. We could pick a time, date, and trailhead to meet for a hike to the lodge (day hike), visit to cliff tops, and then hike back down?? any takers and I will start a topic on forum tomorrow.

A question about the llamas. Are they kept in a barn at night? did not know if there are bears, etc... around the lodge
