The valley below. The light in the bottom of the photo is the lamp light in one of the crew quarters.
The clouds cleared and left us with a spectacular view of the valley last night. The night sky was full of sparkle. I made sure my car batteries were fully charged so I could wake up this morning and watch the fairy tale wedding. Yes, even on top of Mt. LeConte, the Royal Wedding was seen. I couldn't miss history in the making.
We received word that Alum Cave trail had a few downed trees, nothing that was not passable. Trillium had some trees down as well. The park was going to clear that trail so the llamas could make it to the top. As for the other trails, we have not heard about the conditions. I will keep you posted as I hear.
