Grandstand of the Smokies - a Journey to Mt LeConte

In spring of 2015 the Great Smoky Mountains Association will be releasing their third film in the Smoky Mountain Explorer Series. This new film, called Grandstand of the Smokies - a Journey to Mt LeConte, will detail the history, recreation, and unique biological diversity of this geological treasure. Mt LeConte helped spur the creation of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and every year thousands climb to the summit to take in one of the most scenic views in the world.

Below is a clip from the film that discusses the llamas that are used to re-supply the LeConte Lodge via the Trillium Gap Trail:

This sounds very interesting. Seeing I'm a fan of the Smoky Mountains, this seems like it will bring back memories of hiking there.
