Me and the other guys have had a Mt. Leconte trip in the works for months now with a date tentatively set for the morning of October 26th.  We were concerned that the National Parks would be closed during this time because of the partial Government Shutdown, but now that they are back open for business, we’ll be able to head out next week for our trip!

Since we’ve all been to Leconte before via the Alum Cave trail, we’ve decided to take a couple different routes this time.  We’ll be summiting Leconte via the Rainbow Falls trailhead and returning via the Bullhead trail.  This trip will be the longest mile wise that I’ve done in one day at approximately 16 miles!  I’ll be sure and get a trip report together afterwards.
