Allyson is out of power for the blog, they are charging batteries now that they have sun. She is taking pictures and will post some later when they get some power. We have had four hikers come up so far today. They all came up Rainbow Falls trail and advised the the path is very distinct and the snow is being trammeled by day hikers especially up to the falls. The few trees that are down are easy to navigate and other than a few rhododendron thickets to scramble through, they had a good hike. One report has the trail above the falls in better shape than below as far as trees down. Hikers will need some type of ice stabilizer (yak-traks, crampons, etc) as once the trail packs, melts, and refreezes it will be slick. Trekking poles are also a good idea. The Lodge will be open for business as usual tomorrow. Guests trying to pay for 2013 reservations please continue calling or you may mail a check. The due date has been extended through 5:00 pm ET Monday, November 5 because of the snow event and Hurricane Sandy.
