The saying goes, “it always rains on campout,” and rain it sure did. It had been raining almost non-stop for the past week, so we were at least mentally ready for the downpour. Our departure on Friday was delayed a few hours because of a thunderstorm, but after it began to let up, we were on our way. A couple of cabins stayed at Base Camp the first night due to the impending storms. In the early afternoon the weather was wonderful, allowing the groups to hike out and set up camp in a beautiful day. Around dinnertime it began to rain again, but because we had already had the time to set up the tarps, many of the groups stayed nice and dry through the evening and night.
