"If there is one thing clear about the centuries dominated by the factory and the wheel, it is that although the machine can make everything from a spoon to a landing-craft, a natural joy in earthly living is something it never has and never will be able to manufacture."- Henry Beston
I love waking up to the orange glow of sunrise. It is a great start to a day. The mornings are chilly with dew and a cool breeze. The lows have been around 50 degrees. Yesterday was cloudy day with the high in the mid 60's.
There was a question yesterday that was asking about how many trails lead to Mt. LeConte. The answer is 5 or 6 depending on who you ask. There is a description of the 5 main trails on "Facts" page of this blog. The 6th trail is Brushy Mountain which connects to the Trillium Trail and finishes at LeConte. That is the least hike trail to the lodge. It is 9.5 miles and a steep hike. We usually only suggest that trail for hikers that have done all of the others and want a challenge.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Time for some coffee.
