Good Afternoon, We began the day cloaked in gray, but as the morning progressed the clouds gradually gave up their grasp of the mountain. It has been a delightfully sunny afternoon since, overlooking the sea of white blanketing the East Tennessee Valley below. Yesterday's high temperature was recorded at 38 degrees, followed by a low of 31. There were brief showers during the night, but even as temps tip-toed around the freezing mark, it never gave way to flurries. All of the sprinkles and mists only amounted for 0.05" of rain, and the sun is working its magic to dry things out.
Stone steps beneath the bare Mountain Ash lead to Cabin Row and blue skies.
You can really tell it's November on the mountain. The air is cool and clear. Camp is calm and quiet. There is increasing talk of turkey. The days are growing short, and the cozy appeal of candlelit cabins gives the undeniable sense that winter is coming. Guests will surely be clinging to those comfortable Hudson Bay blankets and satisfyingly steamy cups of hot chocolate these remaining days of the season. We're excited about showing the last run of guests a grand time before boarding the place up for its next winter slumber. Until then, have a great start to the week and thanks for stopping by.
It's November, so lean back and kick up your boots, absorbing the mountain's soothing silence.
