Emily at Cliff Tops
A special congratulations to our Chaplin Emily Maddox and her man Phillippe Reed. they got engaged at sunrise this morning. Best of everything to you two! What a beautiful day for us all on LeConte. It's sunny and 50 degrees right now. Our view goes on for miles. Rob and I are playing music on the porch today. Wish you were here to enjoy! The Taylor party were here again! It's always so wonderful to see yall. I hope I get some of your fantastic sunset photos. Well I'm off to play music and then for a hike.
Hello and welcome. Winter is almost here on Mt. LeConte. I'll be the winter caretaker and hopefully will have pleanty of time to share my experiences with you. If you've been here then you know how beautiful and special this place is. At 6593 feet of elevation we often have our own weather pattern. Today it was sunny and cool up here and just below us the valley was covered with clouds. It was a beautiful day with a spectacular sunset. We have about 30 days of the regular season left. I enjoy the guests and will be sad to see them go but I will also be ready for the solitude and quiet beauty that the mountain offers in the winter.
This is my cabin named "The Tack House." It got it's name because it is made out of the old tack house that used to be part of the old horse barn. This is where I have my little solar powered office. It's not much but I love living here. If you've been up to stay then you understand what a special place this is.
