It never ceases to amaze me the beauty that comes after a storm. Chris and I had a beautiful and wet return to the mountain. We were able to take our time and enjoy the mtn. laurel in full swing at Inspiration Point. A little over half way up the trail the bottom dropped and the skies let loose. We found cover in a low point on the trail as hail pelted us. Thank goodness, I know that summer storms don't last very long. I was right. We could hear the thunder as it rolled further away. The rest of the trip was nice. I was nice and cool and just enjoyed the scenery. We returned to the mountain just in time for another thunder storm to pass through. All in all, the mountain received .91" of rain. The high was 66º with a low of 50º. We are currently watching the trees whip around and the sounds of rain fall on the sky lights. I think it is going to be another wet summer day on the mountain. P.s. If there is anyone hiking up today from Knoxville, Chris and I would love a Knoxville paper. There is an article about our new venture once we retire from the mountain in November. Thanks from the mountain top.
