High 38, Low 12.
Just want to thank the UT Women's Tennis Team for coming up and hanging out with me yesterday and bringing sugar cookies.. that was nice.
...Not really... just another very quiet day yesterday with some guys eating lunch and throwing their trash on the porch of Old Lodge, thanks guys. and a spectacular sunrise this morning. I've been looking forward to a night time full moon hike friday... but the forecast is looking like rain right now. :-/ I'll be hiking down Alum either today or tomorrow to carry down some of my winter stuff I won't need anymore, such as the 15lbs of dried beans and rice that I didn't touch haha. Looks to be nice the next couple days, enjoy it.

How thoughtful of them to leave their trash behind for others to enjoy? Will be coming Easter weekend and won't be leaving anything behind!

Some people have no respect for our planet or the rest of us who live on it. Shameful!

Hike up Leconte via Alum trail on Sunday. It was an unusal 6 hour round trip, the ice was daunting in spots... BUT IT WAS GREAT

You should have cameras somehow installed up there but I know you have no electricity. People have no respect for the land we live in. It really upsets me that people would blatantly leave trash behind for another person to clean up.

You would think, that if they were savvy enough to hike up LeConte in this weather, they would have been savvy enough to know that if you hike it in, HIKE IT OUT! Geez!

just one of the things that humans are good at nowadays. Leaving their mess for someone else to clean up. That and thinking they are entitled to everything under the sun. Great job up there Alex

Went fishing today in Chilhowee Lake. Didn’t catch squat, nor even see any fish, jumping or swimming around giving us the fin. Did see a couple of bald eagles, a pileated woodpecker and two belted kingfishers. In the mouth of Abrams Creek saw three otters. Hope they caught more fish than we did.

I got out my hiking boots yesterday and went for a short hike. It was beautiful here in Chattanooga with the temps in the 60's. Got "itchy feet" to go hiking and fishing. Want to try out a new nymph on some trout up in Elizabethton!!!
