It's a beautiful, spring morning up top. The high yesterday reached 38 degrees, although it felt much warmer in the afternoon sun. The overnight low was 29 degrees. It was 29 degrees and clear at 7am. The mountain received no new precipitation and there is no snow remaining up top. The trails are almost entirely clear.
Spectacular pinks, purples and oranges tint the early morning clouds. It is a fitting good bye view from my cabin window. I'll be taking off early tomorrow morning, the blog will return when Chris & Allyson are back on the mountain sometime next week. Enjoy the Smokies for me while I ramble northward to my beloved New England mountains!
