High 32, Low 26.
Alum was packed down really well, was able to make it up under 1:45 yesterday, beating my best winter hike time. Of course, it is very icy since all the heat/sun we've gotten, but with these microspikes it was fine. Trillium, Boulevard, and Bullhead all have not had trail broken yet. Time in Gatlinburg was good, was able to hike up about 25lbs of fresh vegetables and fruit too. I'll be up this week, then back down friday for the Beardsley Farm Soup and Beard Competition at Barley's in Knoxville. Supposed to be raining today (90%), which should make the trail uncomfortable. About once a month it gets to a point where I absolutely have to do laundry... That day is today. And yes, Allyson is a much, much better photographer than I. http://www.allysonvirdenphotography.com

Ok, so how do you do laundry, i.e. dry? and a big WOW! to the picture! Glad you got to spend time in the city!
Wow, I bet you appreciate your food much better when you have to carry it the side of a mountain ( and here I moan and groan about carrying it from the car ;)

Don't sell yourself short on your photography abilities. You take some great pics also. Thanks for all the info and pictures.

Alex, I agree with Galen, don't sell yourself short. Every photographer has a different eye. I have loved seeing how you are viewing the mountain through your lens. Mt. LeConte has a lot to offer in ways of inspiration.

I don't know how you can possibly take a bad picture with that scenery!!
