Greetings valley dwellers! Turnip here, with another installment of what's what high on LeConte. Our new guy, Tate, showed up just a little while ago and he is eager to learn all the ins and outs of the lodge. We had a lost and found fashion show curtesy of Mr. Justin Cave. He is pictured here wearing a beautiful pink rain hat and "too small for you" sleep pants, which I hear is all the rage in Paris right now. No sign of yesterday's bear yet but we are keeping our eyes peeled and noses ready for any bear smells. The rain finally arrived yesterday afternoon with a quick downpour! The forecast is still calling for more rain so remember, rain gear. Our current mountain temperature is a misty 63 with last nights low reaching 55.
Justin, looking fashionable as ever. He's a real "hoot" 😀
