This picture pretty much sums up yesterday. Clouds, wind, rain, and more rain. It is to bad that the LeConte Olympics did not hold their kayaking event yesterday. They would have made it down to Gatlinburg in record time. The mountain soaked up another .62" of rain over the 24 hour period. The high yesterday was 60 with a low of 52. The clouds seem to be breaking this morning. Here is hoping for a beautiful day up top.
Nathan left last night for some much needed r&r. He is heading out west to visit some friends, and horses, at a ranch in Colorado and then up to Yellowstone. He is excited to see his friends, but I think he is even more excited to see his old pals, his horses. Don't worry, he took along his infamous cowboy hats. He carried them down the mountain in a box and plastic bag. Now, that is a true cowboy. Nathan, we hope you have some amazing rides out west. Don't forget to bring back some pictures.
