The rain stopped just in time for the crew to celebrate the half way point of the season. We call it mid-season. We usually celebrate with a progressive dinner. It is always fun to see what culinary delights the crew can come up with. The above picture is Matt grilling his famous "Oopsies". They consist of maraschino cherries and bacon on a skewer and then grilled. I know, I know, it sounds a bit odd. I will say, they were delicious. We were all pleasantly surprised. The crew did an amazing job and fun was had by one and all.
Yesterday was a bit of a mess weather wise. The high was 64º with a low of 58º. We received 1.38" of rain yesterday.
Trail Warning With all of the rain we have been having and the rain that is in the forecast, I am going to suggest that hikers do not use Rainbow Falls trail. Apparently, one of the stream crossings above the falls has shifted and it diverts the water in way that makes it impassable when we get heavy rainfall. Until something can be done, we are suggesting people to stay off of Rainbow Falls trail.
