    Trail description: Towering and formidable, Mount Index is perhaps the most awesome and fiercest sight and site along US 2. But softening its stark appearance is Bridal Veil Falls. Emanating from beneath the mountain's austere crags, the tiered and tumbling cataract drapes over granite slabs. To really appreciate this plummeting waterway, however, you'll need to leave your vehicle and hit the trail. And in your journey, discover a secret - there's a beautiful lake perched beneath those rugged spires feeding those falls.

    Current trail conditions: Snow free.

    As a fan of snow, I'm not terribly sorry the updated forecast may cancel this hike: A chance of snow before 10am, then rain, possibly mixed with snow. High near 36. East southeast wind 6 to 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible.

    If the forecast worsens, I'll post an update tomorrow.
