I know the mountains of NC have been getting quite a bit of rain in the last few days. I can't tell from the weather reports the degree those rains cover north and east as the trail goes into VA and up towards I-81. Any reports for the last few days?

Oh, yes. It has been cool and wet. There was not even the need for a hurricane to bring it. If you are planning to hike in these parts in the next week or so, you are not going to have to burden yourself with toooo much water. Surely is nice.--Kinnickinic

I talked to Mount Rogers Outfitters yesterday and they say the rains have been good lately and the water supply should be ok for their area. It takes 3 months to get the ground water recharged but should have enough water to not have to pack it all.

It's not great but it is a lot better.
