We awoke to a lovely sunrise and a clear morning today. Yesterday's high reached 68 with a low of 50 and currently we are at a comfortable 61...lovely weather for a walk in the woods.
Over the past month I have been training with Chris and Allyson on everything from water pumps, to paper work, to the finer points in the art of biscuit making (llamas can be rather picky about the flakiness-to-density ratio...and more importantly, the guests would like them to taste delicious). Although there are certainly things I've found that I enjoy more than others (making breakfast v. cleaning out the incinerator- I'm sure you can probably deduce which would be more fun) the thing I love the most has remained the same from day one. Being able to talk to people and help them enjoy their own beautiful and unique experience on this wonderful mountain- to make them comfortable while leaving behind the comforts of the modern world.
I know that so many of you read this blog everyday in order to have a little piece of that experience and excitement everyday from where ever you might be. I'll confess to you, I've never written a daily blog. Some days might be more interesting that other, some days might be brief, some days I might go on so long you'll think you might never reach the end! But that is how life is up here on Leconte - just like the weather, it can vary wildly. But i do hope that I can give you my own perspective of this place that i love so dearly!
Until next time, Internet World!
