No visit to the lodge is complete without a stop to Cliff Tops. The views overlooking the rest of the Smoky Mountain National Park are breathing from this point. On clear days you can easily see all the way to Clingmans Dome. It is a short 0.2 mile walk from the lodge to reach this wonderful spot. Cliff Tops is also the best location to view sunset while on top of Mount LeConte. Be sure not to miss this amazing spot if you plan a visit.
This morning has been another foggy one. Fingers crossed it clears up sooner rather then later because forecasts are calling for a slight chance of rain this evening. With not much sunshine making its way through the clouds we are staying fairly cool. Currently 61 degrees. Last nights low came in at 51 degrees.
