What a great day for a commute to work. Chris and I took our time hiking up Alum Cave soaking in the color as we ascended. The colors in the lower elevations are at their prime. The leaves turned the trail into what looked like a yellow brick road. We made it to the top to find Sevier county covered in clouds. We had an amazing inversion going on. The high yesterday was 56 with a low of 36. I was surprised to hear that no one had won our snow pool yet. The temperatures on the mountain seemed to be warmer then they were in Gatlinburg. Just goes to show how tricky the weather is on the top.
