The recent rains made for great waterfalls. Gill Brook put on a real show with waterfalls, cascades, and rushing white water all the way alongside the trail. Although the gatekeeper thought Rainbow Falls and Beaver Meadow Falls might be inaccessible because of flooding, we reached both. The roaring water fell 150 feet at Rainbow Falls; Beaver Meadow Falls, though slightly lower, was really beautiful with its many ledges. A spectacular ending to a very good hike!
