I say this every morning when I wake up on Mt. LeConte. I realize how lucky I am to live in such an amazing location. It is easy to get into a routine and not pay attention to your surroundings, but living this close to nature always gives us a wake up call. Wether it is a great thunderstorm over head, a bear coming into camp, a doe leading her fawn into camp, new blooms on flowers, or the amazing sunrises and sunsets, we are constantly in awe.
The weather is still hanging over head, literally. We are currently socked in and expecting rain. I am sure it will rain all day since I am scheduled to hike down to today. Chris and I are heading down for our days off and will return on Monday.
