Yesterday was a great day to get out of camp and take a hike. Chris and I decided to check out Brushy mountain. I am glad I did. It was the perfect place for a picnic. The day started out cool and cloudy. As we hiked down in elevation, the sun came out and the clouds dispersed.
We ran into our fellow LeConte crew member, Walt. He was hiking up the Brushy mountain trail. I was amazed at how many day hikers we saw on Brushy. I guess they had the same idea we did.
The top of the Mt. LeConte warmed up to a comfortable 59 degrees. The low was 44. Today is moving in the direction of thunderstorms. You can hear the thunder rumbling as I type. I am glad I saved the big chore of resurfacing our kitchen floor for today. I don't think it would have been a good hiking day.
