It is a peaceful morning in the Smokies. I love the time change. I wake up earlier and get to enjoy an extra hour of solitude. The temperature, as of 6:50 a.m., is 45 degrees. It is looking like another warm day up top. The ice and snow is melting. Should be a great day for a hike.
On a personal note, I want to send a greeting to my sister-in-law. She is getting ready to run her first New York City Marathon. "Good luck Stacy. We are super proud of you and excited for you. Have a great run!!"
