The weekend is almost here. Actually, this time of year, we are busy every night. The sounds of children playing hide and seek, the laughter as they find a salamander and try and hang on to it, the chatter around the hot chocolate dispenser, and then the peace and quiet as they all fall asleep after a day filled with new adventures. That is summer around LeConte Lodge. It makes you wonder how many kids will aspire to be a ranger, a LeConte Lodge crew member, or maybe even a llama wrangler. I did have a four year old tell me she hopes to be the llama wrangler when she grows up. Now, that is a new career path. I guess climbing Mt. LeConte can be a life changer for all ages. It was a nice day around the lodge. The high yesterday was 69º with a low of 53º. The guests enjoyed the nightly firework display thanks to Dollywood. I still find it interesting how sound travels. You see the beautiful burst of color and then you hear the boom about 30 seconds later. I leave you, today, with one of my favorite quotes. “Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So… get on your way!” - Dr. Seuss
