Yesterday turned out to be a nice day. The mountain was covered in day hikers. The llamas made their trip up only to discover our resident deer was not too worried about them. They were a little concerned she was going to go after their pancakes. Her presence was noted and, as you can see by their ears, they were on guard. The good news is she left their food alone and stuck to her native plants.
The weather is looking a bit sinister. The wind is currently howling through camp and acting as the morning wake up call. The rain has not started, but judging by the looming clouds, it is on its way. Chris did manage to get a good shot of sunrise this morning.
Yesterday's temperatures were 53º and a low of 32º.
One more thing to pass along. Don't forget that we do have an online store on our website. You can go to https://www.lecontelodge.com/store/ purchase some cool items that are NOT available on the mountain. The same goes for the "I Hiked It" shirts, they are NOT available on the website. This is your chance to purchase a cool tie die shirt or some other LeConte branded items.
