Its a gorgeous morning on the mountain. The high yesterday was 21 degrees. The overnight low was a brisk 10 degrees. It was 10 degrees and clear skies at 7am observation. We received 0.07” of precipitation. We accumulated 1” of snow. Our snow depth is 1”. Hwy 441 is closed as of now so Cherokee Orchard is your access to the top. Traction devices are a must today! Sunshine will be abundant this weekend so get out and enjoy our beloved Smoky Mountains.
Yesterday was a cold windy day up top with wind gusts upwards of 35 mph blowing light snow around the lodge. My run down Alum was 1 hour 17 minutes! After returning to the top I enjoyed the afternoon with my Haley Bug and we made a fabulous taco dinner with Apple and Peach cobbler for dessert. As I’m typing we are having a huge breakfast consisting of bacon, sausage, eggs, and homemade bread for toast! Today will be a day for exploring the mountain! Hope y’all have a wonderful day! SEE YOU AT THE TOP!
