Snow On the Mountain
I don't think the rocking chairs are going to get much use today. It is currently 14º and holding tight. The high yesterday was 28º. We have about 1/4" of powder on the ground. I don't think trails will be too bad today, but I will let you know if anyone reports differently. I do know it is freezing up here. Make sure you bring plenty of layers to keep warm. Remember to drink plenty of water. You still need to rehydrate even when it is this cold out.

Congratulations to intrepid LeConte veteran E. Dan Smith on his 50th trek up Bullhead today. It seems that, with every climb, he gains another year on Father Time. Here's to the next 50.

Wow-I can't believe it is this cold so early! Hi everybody! Allison & Chris-are you going to blog somewhere about your Kauai adventures? Since I live in Maui now, would love to hear about what you all are doing there this winter. We haven't visited Kauai yet, but hear it is amazing. I haven't been on this blog in a while, but assure you all I miss my beloved Mt LeConte, my no bake cookies and all of the people on the mountain and my fellow hikers on this blog. Tony Ga, Ryan La, Brian n Bama, hope you guys are getting to hike now that the mountain is open again! I was thinking about all of my winter hikes last year, and don't even remember it being 14 when I arrived up top last year. I think 19 was the lowest I remember. Better get those Yak traks and Kahtoola microspikes out people!

Doug Y-I just saw on yesterday's blog that you were going to have surgery. I pray all goes well, and you are back on the trails by spring easy! I have heard really good reports from friends on that knee surgery.

Steve D, good to hear from you. I am more excited than a kid at Christmas. Hoping for some cool temps and snow again for our November overnight. Hope your adventures go well in Hawaii. HAPPY TRAILS

JP-I am going to miss my winter hiking and seeing you up top and on the trail this winter! I assume you are still coming, and will be there in about 4-5 weeks. I will be hiking Mt Haleakala soon I hope over here, and get this-we drove to the rangers station on it a couple of weeks ago at an elevation of 7000 ft! Pretty amazing views, and yes it was cold and very windy. You can drive all the way to the top at 10000 ft. There are a variety of trails on the mountain, so I will take my time learning this mountain and being safe while I am doing it. A fellow got lost on it a few weeks ago, and thankfully they found him after 2 days, and he will be alright. Have a great winter JP!

Our daughter and son in law just returned from 2 weeks in Kuaia.They loved it. Stayed at Marriot and also at a place that had two cabins and you were encouraged to take from thier organic garden and fruit trees.Like,Avacotas,Mangos,bananas. Awesome trip! I hope it will be the same for you all. Till then,stay warm and well .Happy trails to you !

I can't even conceive what 14 degrees would feel like, right now. It's been unseasonably cool for the past few days -- didn't make it out of the 40s today -- and that feels bad enough.
10/25/2013 01:44:21 pm
Ah, yes....I remember it we'll!

Oops...still thawing out...I mean "well"
