What a perfect day on the mountain. Hikers were out and about enjoying the fresh mountain air. We even have some new additions to the Mt. LeConte community. The little guys above were bouncing around camp all afternoon. We call them "the twins". There is also a smaller fawn that hangs out pretty close to mom. They have brought much entertainment to our small world around the lodge. We have noticed a lot of deer activity the past couple of weeks. Maybe they are here to check out the wild flowers. I noticed the monkshood starting blooming after the big storm we got. I am so amazed at how early the flowers are coming out. If you like to witness the wild flowers around the lodge, I would say give it another couple of weeks and they will be popping.
