I knew you all wouldn't let me down. Thanks for the beautiful proverbs and poems. It is obvious, through your words, how special Mt. LeConte is to so many people. I have been asked a lot lately if Chris and I will still visit LeConte. I am not sure if people know this, but Chris and I own a home in Gatlinburg. I have called Sevier county my home since 1997. We bought a house about a mile from the Park boundary over four years ago. We love living so close to the Park. We will take advantage of our location and visit our favorite mountain as much as possible. We are also looking forward to exploring parts of the Park we have not been to in a long time. We were lucky enough to get out to Myrtle Point yesterday. It was a gorgeous day for a little nap at our favorite point. The mountain was busy with hikers, as I imagine today will be. The high was 64º with a low of 46º. Chris and I will be hiking off the mountain in the morning to attend the nuptials of our two favorite llama wranglers. Chrissy and Alan will be tying the knot Monday morning. I will have photos when I return. In the meantime, Ruthie is making her way back to the mountain, so you will be hearing from her soon.
