The 2011 season is right around the corner. Chris and I are packing our bags and getting ready to hike up the mountain in the morning. Wouldn't you know, we have had amazing weather for the past three weeks and today they are calling for a winter warning in the Smokies. Unbelievable!!!! The crew will hit the trail around 10 am. As to what trail, who knows. It all depends on what roads are open. I look forward to returning to the mountain and showing you our day to day lives up top.
