October is finally here! One of the most popular times to visit the park for the foliage. Even just a short drive through the park on 441 is a spectacular experience. Soon the lands will transform from vibrant greens to rich oranges and reds. Certainly a sight to add to any bucket list. Looking at the face of Mount LeConte (pictured) from Alum Cave Trail we can see a few signs of the fall weather rolling in. Last night we dropped to 52 degrees with a surprising high of 70 degrees. A small rain shower visited us yesterday late afternoon and left us with 0.2 inches of water. Todays forecast looks similar with chances of rain late afternoon.
