Yesterday was great day for a hike back to work. The high on the mountain was 54 with a chilly low of 39. I went from wearing a tank top and shorts to pants and a sweater. It is best to bring layers with you when you hike up Mt. LeConte. As you have read in the blog, temperatures can drop at the snap of a finger. It is currently raining up top and the temperature is hovering around the low 40's.
