Greetings my waterlogged Northern Californians.
I'm not gonna beat around the bush here: Do this hike now! Go on Thursday if you can, when the local temp is supposed to reach a balmy and bright 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Spring runoff is everywhere, the falls are going wild, wildflowers are just starting to bloom, the forest is a cornucopia of intoxicating scents, and everything is green, green, green.
