Aaaahhhh sunshine. Good to have it back in leaps and bounds. This week should make for some fabulous outdoorsy weather, so if you're in the vicinity, try and pencil in a stop to ole LeConte. We'd be delighted to see you. The rain streak was snapped yesterday, and clouds eventually broke enough in time for folks to enjoy the solar spectacles at Cliff Tops last night and Myrtle Point this morning. Friday's high temperature managed to climb up to a rather balmy feeling 58 degrees, and our overnight low hit 42. Today promises to be even warmer, but you'll still want that extra layer for the evenings and shady places.
We've heard about a couple trees down on The Boulevard, but nothing that kept hikers from reaching the mountain. Still waiting on word regarding Rainbow Falls. If you ever happen to see the trail crews and volunteers working on trails, and not just here on LeConte, be sure to say thanks. It can be back breaking work that goes a long way into making people's treks much more pleasant when they visit the Smokies, work that often goes unnoticed.
Enjoy your weekend wherever you may be!
