Hello from Mt LeConte! Today got off to a rather miserable start—high winds, rain, and of course fog/low clouds. The temperature at 7:00 AM was 46 degrees. Yesterday’s high was 52 degrees with sunshine.
We had a lot of day hikers yesterday since it was Saturday and the weather was nice. There were still reports of some icy spots on some of the trails, so watch your step!
Be certain to wear and/or carry adequate jackets and layers because the wind today is brisk and cold. Wear caps and gloves. The good news is that the wind has blown the clouds and fog away from the top of the mountain and the sun is now shining brightly.
It’s another beautiful day on top of our favorite mountain!
