The ranger told us that if rain was coming we would know it. He said it would get dark and the winds would kick up suddenly... and he was right. A few minutes after this photo was taken the temperature dropped, dark clouds rolled in and the winds kicked up in what felt like an instant. There was so much mist swirling around us that it was hard to tell if it had even started raining yet or not. It was about all we could do to climb up from Mooney Falls as fast as we possibly could. It's those moments that stick with me the most... shivering, climbing up the muddy ladder rungs and chains set in place on the rock wall, and telling myself to just keep moving. Thankfully it's a relatively short climb and we made it to the top. ...but those "Get me the F outta here" moments are always some of the most memorable!
