It's been a beautiful autumn day on Mt. LeConte, with substantial sunshine and intermittent clouds scattering the light across the surrounding mountains. Ought to be another stellar sunset tonight, which has been a trend of late with all these dry days. It doesn't look like that's going to change anytime soon, in which some rain would be nice after one of our longest dry spells of the year so far. Saturday's high temperature came in at 67 degrees and our low was fairly mild at 47. We once again have enjoyed the mid 60's again today.
The llamas had another successful supply haul today. Just a reminder for folks that their schedule will continue to be Sunday/Wednesday/Friday through the end of the season. Fall color around camp is past peak at this point as the Mountain Ash are browning and dropping leaves. There are already shades of yellow appearing at the middle elevations. Sounds like the leaf peeping season will come a little sooner than normal this year.
Have a great finish to the week. Hard to believe October is a week away!
