I will start by saying that Chris and I had a great hike up the mountain. I was in awe when I saw the damage that had happened on Alum Cave trail from the rains on Sunday. Areas of the trail had been washed out. There was a huge rock pile where the water had moved a large amount of rocks and then laid them to rest on this big pile near the trail. I remembered reading someone's comment about hiking down during that storm. I guess the area I am talking about was up to there knees in water. After seeing the size of the rocks that were being moved in that current, I would have been a little hesitant in walking through that water. I am so grateful that no one was hurt during that downpour.
Speaking of rain, we did not get very much yesterday. A total of .02". The high was 70 with a low of 54. There seemed to be a lot of kids on the mountain last night. I think families are getting in that last vacation before school starts back.
