But what if it rains?

As many experienced outdoor guides will tell you, "there's no such thing as bad weather -- only poor clothing."

Most people who dress appropriately for the conditions discover that the idea of getting wet is the unpleasant part. Actually getting rained on is no big deal at all, if you're dressed for the conditions: YOU don't get soaked - your outer layer protects you from that nasty 'ol H2O. 

Of course, if you raft or paddle, getting wet is guaranteed, rain or shine!  You can rent a wetsuit at the rafting basecamp if the weather is questionable.

So bring clothing (including footwear) appropriate to your planned activity, and rain attire in any case. You'll be dry and happy, unless you get onto the river, in which case you'll merely be happy.

See "What to bring" for adventure clothing guidelines.
