The clouds that were covering the valley all of Monday finally broke free last night, so it looks like everyone in East Tennessee, regardless of elevation, will get to partake of the wonderful sunshine today. Temperatures dropped sharply last night to 25 degrees before returning to the freezing mark by breakfast. Our high yesterday was 40. We're expecting repetitive conditions the next few days, so it should make for some great hiking weather. Come on up and see us if you can!
2017 Season in Pictures - Part I
With the season winding down and the lodge a week away from serving its last overnight guests, we'll go back through the calendar and relive some of the pictorial highlights from 2017. Enjoy a look back at months January through April!
Winter finally decided to show up in mid-March at the absolute wrong time. Snow accumulations for the system topped out at 7", but the real story were the frigid temperatures. On a couple occasions Mt. LeConte dropped below 0 degrees, it's lowest reading coming in at -3.2 one night. Preventing pipes from freezing became a top priority.
We'll revisit the arrival of spring and enter the heat of summer in the next installment. Have a great day.
