Don't let the forecast fool you; the weather and recreating conditions are highly unpredicable as late summer transitions to fall. Keep the following in mind as you prepare for a day enjoying the forest.
Heavy rain can create potentially dangerous and life threatening situations if attempting a water crossing or simply getting too close to take the perfect picture.
Refresh your water recreating safety knowledge before heading out on your trip.
