With 100% rain in the forecast for today, I highly recommend anyone hiking up to bring their rain gear. It is cool and wet up top so bring a change of clothes for the top. The high yesterday was 58 with a low of only 50. The mountain ash trees are already starting to show some of their color. I have heard tales of certain areas in the park where the trees are already donning their fall colors. I am predicting it is going to be an early fall this year. I think we will see peak colors around the 2nd or 3rd week in October. I guess we will have to wait to see if my prediction is correct.
