    Thanks to the weather spirits for the break in the downfall. It was great to be in the forest and to share it with you all.

    Really enjoyed the hike. A nice group, the air was crisp and fresh, everything is getting green again, and a good-looking waterfall. Thanks Kitty!!

    A few droplets, but to see all the creeks and falls full was so very worth it. Thank you, Kitty for hanging in there and making this happen.

    Yeah, to soggy for me too. Plus it looks like I'm still dealing with some heavy duty coughing from being sick the past week. Next time!

      Thanks Kitty, but I don't think the weather is going to cooperate for us. Hope you all have a good time!

      I don't mind a hike in a drizzle, but the sporadic downpours have been quite wet - I may pass- and it's been a while so I am disappointed. See you at the next one.
