Comments
Comments: Morning hike in the rain through the waterfalls was lovely. Toughing out the rain on most of the ridge was well worth it -- the clouds dissipated in the afternoon in time for some excellent views. On Falling Waters Trail and the ridgeline, we were mostly alone, but by the time we hit the hut and Old Bridle Path in the afternoon we were passing dozens of people.
