Gorgeous morning on the mountain. It feels like fall with the cool, crisp air and bright blue sky. I took a picture of our pump house for you. This is where the water pump is housed. We have three types of water pumps for the lodge. The first one is a ram pump. It runs when we are getting a heavy amount of rain. It works off of the water flow. We have a gas powered water pump for the times we are not getting much rain or sun. The last one is a solar powered pump. It works off of the solar panels. The solar pump is great because it cuts out noise pollution. So far this summer, we have not had to use any other pump. The sun created enough power to run the pump for the past few months.
Welcome to the LeConte Lodge blog. We hope you enjoy the information we provide to make your trip to the lodge the best it can be.
