Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: First crossing was barely doable with dry feet. 2nd and 3rd we took the shoes off. I’m 6-1 and the water level was over my knees. Strong current. And that’s all just runoff, if any of the storms hit tomorrow it’s going to get real spicy.

Comments
Comments: Went out on a little recon mission with Chase, Denise, and Bethanee. Few other people out today, oddly nobody but us had traction. Took the slide which is snow/ice free until it basically turns back into a trail, then spikes were helpful. Conditions up top weren’t as bad as we expected. The snowpack has taken a beating. See notes above on the crossings.
