Crystal clear skies cover the Smokies and greet lodge guests this morning. Another beautiful day to enjoy the outdoors is upon us. Temps up top will reach the 60s this afternoon and conditions will remain mostly sunny with only light winds. The rest of the first week of October is looking like more of the same, a great way to start the month and relish in autumn glory. Hard to believe we’re down to just 50 days to go in the 2023 season, but our reservations team is already looking ahead to 2024, as bookings for next season continue again today. Remember to check those inboxes and spam folders for confirmation emails as they process thousands of written requests and phone calls this week.
