There were no roads to LeConte. It wasn’t a Mount Mitchell, a Mount Washington, or a Mount Evans with winding, paved roads spewing out passengers for ten-minute photo opportunities with a summit sign. To arrive at LeConte, one must hike. Even the llamas hike, but helicopter pilots got a pass.
Mountains Malbec and Men
Noelle Cumberland was born and raised in a pre-Katrina New Orleans. She’s never far from a mountain whether it’s a quick trail run on Chattanooga’s Lookout Mountain or hanging prayer flags in the Himalayas. When not living her best mountain life, she works hard for the money, partakes in the lost art of porch sitting, and enjoys a good laugh with the real characters in her life. Sweet Charlotte is her first published work, and she is currently working on her first novel, Mountains Malbec and Men.
