LeConte 2012

2012-11-10

The annual trip to Mt. LeConte is logged into memory! Our guests this year included Bo and Kim! It was Kim’s first trip up the mountain and to the Smokies! This trip was full of “firsts!”

Mt LeConte 2012
We hiked up on Trillium. It was my first time on this trail. We ran into snow about 2.5 miles in. The higher we got, the deeper the snow. The snow was about 2 feet deep at the top. Hiking in snow is exhausting. I wasn’t quite sure I was going to make it. The view of the sunset at the top was worth it, though.

The big storm had wreaked havoc with the trails. The llamas come up Trillium 2-3 times a week, but had been grounded since before “Sandy” had come through and knocked down trees and dumped several feet of snow. To get needed supplies and shuttle laundry up and down, the lodge had to hire a chopper service.  It was so much fun to watch it land, help unload and reload it.
