    Tellico Closures
    Lower 2 was closed today 2-18-07. Remember there will still be many trails open. Lots of snow today, Chuck and our guest had a blast. Then challenged our rock crawl at the end of the day. Keep coming to Tellico, it lets them know we want it open! Helen Tellico Cabins [​IMG]
