Oh, it’s nice to hear the sound of rain on rooftops. The earth is thankful to get a drink, and we’re thankful for the cool down after yesterday’s scorcher. Storms have been rolling through the region all night and will be dumping rain on the mountains into the afternoon before dissipating. Trails are going to be a wet and muddy mess most likely, and there will be runoff rushing down drainages that could create some wet unbridged crossings. Best to avoid trails like Rainbow Falls with its hazardous crossing of LeConte Creek a few tenths above the falls. We could see some sunshine later today and guests might just be treated to a sunset after enduring today’s soaker. The next few days look quite pleasant calling for abundant sunshine. Going to be much cooler today, with highs not escaping the 50s and our overnight low set to be down in the 40s. Winds will be light. Remember, if you come across any trail hazards that could make passage difficult or impossible, especially on trails like Trillium Gap or Alum Cave, let us and/or the NPS know so that it can be addressed promptly.
