Hi Everyone!!!! Just wanted to post an update for the hike this coming sunday.

The weather is predicted as follows:

Rain 20%

Temp in the mid 50's

It WILL be chilly in the morning so please dressing accordingly!!

We will have a slight increase in the stream flow at on the hike as well as at the falls, however I don't see this being a problem, as the stream crossings are minimal and few. We should have a GREAT hike and the canyon should look spectacular this weekend!!!

If you decide that this might not be to your liking PLEASE by all means UPDATE your RSVP

ASAP!!!! This hike is not limited but as a courtsey to me I would appreciate this VERY MUCH!!!

Thank you, and I look forward to seeing EVERYONE Sunday morning!!!!
