A beautiful Smoky Mountain sunrise full of pinks and oranges welcomes another day and the final weekend of the 2022 lodge season. We have more frigid temps on deck, but that likely won’t deter travelers from flocking to the mountains today. This Saturday begins in the teens, but the ever-present breeze has us feeling like we‘re still in the single digits. This will be the case for at least another 24 hours before the mercury is expected to climb back up to a more seasonably appropriate range. We might even register wind chills below zero tonight as gusts cut as much as 35mph. Thank goodness for the sunshine to warm our spirits. Continue to pay close attention to any icy patches on trail. The crew is looking forward to its annual Mountain Thanksgiving tradition this weekend, one final grand feast enjoying each other’s company as the conclusion to a memorable season draws near.
