We awoke to rain this morning and now the sun is teasing us. It will shine through the trees for a brief moment and then the clouds win over. There are thunderstorm warnings for today, so who knows what kind of weather we will get. We actually ended up with a nice day yesterday. There were a lot of day hikers taking advantage of the semi-dry day. I wish I was proficient in my Photoshop skills. I would add a canoe onto one of the trail pictures. After trying to run yesterday, it felt like I either needed to be in wet suit our a boat. The trails are a little soggy. We are still suggesting people steer clear of Rainbow Falls trail. We are due for rain for the next couple of weeks. We just don't know when the rain is coming and how much. It could cause for a problem with stream crossings. Any other trail is going to be fine. Have a safe hike and see you on the mountain.
