We finally bid Zeta farewell, but only after we received more than 5.5” of rain (!!!) the last two days. Still a great deal of water rushing off the mountain, with places like Grotto Falls and Rainbow Falls surging over their ledges. Trails are going to be literal rivers at times today, with some unbridged crossings up to one’s knees. Until the water subsides, guests are still advised to use Alum Cave Trail. We’re still in the process of gathering intel on trail conditions, but if you come across any hazards please let us know. Clouds are trying to break, and our low of 30° started to spawn some frost formation. No snow yet, and with the sunny stretch in the days ahead, we may have dodged that bullet for a little while longer. Still plenty chilly up here especially with the wind, so have layers to keep yourself dry and warm.
Be safe and have a great day.
