The Mist Trail gets its name from the mountains of mist that arise from the waterfalls pounding on the rocks. You are bound to get wet! So the rain didn't bother us that much but it did make the rocks extra slippery. I got some great pictures and it's further inspired me to get a DSLR to take even cooler pics!

Getting to the food portion of this post... I had planned a nice, healthy dinner for us to cook over the fire on Friday night to fuel us for the hike on Saturday. Imagine my horror when we got to the campsite and found out it was sans food locker OR fire pit. Major wrench in the plan. However, pleased to report that though our combined ingenuity we crafted a makeshift grill that did the job just fine....
