RECORD BREAKING TEMPERATURES HIT MT. LECONTE!!
It was like the New Years Eve countdown. As soon as we saw that it was 74 at 9 am, we knew we were going to break the record on Friday. As the thermometer read 79.7 degrees, the crew ran and grabbed their cameras so they could snap a picture of the proof that Mt. LeConte finally reached 80 degrees. Around 1 pm the temperature hit a high of 81.4. This was huge news for those of us who love Mt. LeConte. It has always been a bragging right to say the mountain has never reached 80 degrees. I guess now we will have to say 82 degrees? The crew celebrated by having a water balloon fight.
