Chris and I spend a lot of time in antique stores when we are on days off. I always get a warm fuzzy feeling when I come across a Hudson Bay blanket that someone is selling. I have been known to purchase one or two. The blankets are one of those iconic connections that most everyone, who has stayed at the Lodge, can identify with. From the best hot chocolate in the world, or the glass of Tang at breakfast, to the Hudson Bay blankets on the beds, there are Lodge traditions that will always be a part of your LeConte stories. That is what makes this place so special to so many people.
