The first day of the 2022 season is here! The sun is shining and the crew is welcoming the first distant travelers to the lodge. Tonight marks the beginning of nearly eight months straight of hosting outdoor enthusiasts on a daily basis. That also means our gift shop is open for folks to purchase this year’s new shirt design, and many other unique products. This year’s artwork is detailed ridge-for-ridge view from Cliff Tops while catching one of those famous sunsets.
Today is a glorious mountain Monday to be hiking on Mt. LeConte. We’ve been spending time in the 50s this afternoon and should enjoy mild temps and clear skies this evening. Looks like by Tuesday night through Wednesday the atmosphere will be rocking and rolling. Our region is on tap for a High Wind Watch, where the upper elevations could endure 70mph gusts. Rain is also expected. Whether you’re heading up or down the mountain that day, come ready for the elements.
Have a great rest of the day.
