Well the rain has stopped – for now!  Enjoy any of these sunny, rain-free days that you can.  Hiking and mountain biking are a little muddy in spots, and many stream crossings are challenging – but conditions should dry out with a few good sunny days.  You would also want to USE CAUTION on any swimming trips that might have been impacted by the high water levels  The good news is that all this rain has produced a phenomenal river level for whitewater rafting on the Upper Hudson River.  Rafting is always fun – but this is Spring levels with Summer weather and warm water!  Get out there!  Here’s the weather for the week – and for more weather information visit our weather page.  Weather Page for more info CLICK HERE.
