Oh, sunny days, don’t you ever leave. The autumn magic of the Smokies continues with each picture perfect day. Temps at the lodge were relatively balmy for this time of year, getting into the lower 60s yesterday. Overnight lows remain moderate in the mid 40s. Mostly clear skies full of bright light during the day and a mesmerizing moon accompanied by stars at night. We have at least one more day on tap with such delightful conditions. The weekend could start off cloudy and a little wet, but these warm temps are expected to persist.
With these beautiful days in the mountains, Mt. LeConte continues to be a popular place for the leaf-peeping crowds. Thank you to everyone’s patience as our team works hard to tend to our countless customers while they visit the lodge. With record setting visitation across the park during a historically busy time of year, patience is going to be a part of the entire Smokies experience from road to trail to summit. Again, thank you for taking the time to include us in your plans.
