A beautiful 24 hours in the books with a high of 68 and low of 49. This mild weather is allowing for guests to wear shorts and a light jacket as they enjoy the views of the valley below. Over the next couple of days, we should be staying between 50-70 degrees then dropping by ten degrees by Thursday. We hope you all enjoyed the long weekend and get a chance to come cool off in the higher elevations!
Our very own Scott Hengehold captured the picture below of Elk near the Oconaluftee visitor center on 441. We hope you get to see this and other wildlife when you enter the park. Just remember to give all wildlife their space!
