Comments
Comments: Trails are completely wet and mushy after yesterday's rain, with several sections of standing water. Ledges are wet and slippery. Hurricane Gap Trail had a significant (3 by 8 feet, several inches thick) chunk of blue ice on one section, avoided with a bit of fancy footwork.

Some of this dampness should dry out over the course of the day.
