Crossing nearest the cascades had fast water and was trickier but doable. Crossing nearest Nancy Pond has a long log that has been broken in half do to the recent rush of water.

Comments
Comments: Trail started out with an inch or two of crusting snow, but about 1/3 up, turned into a full winter scene. Snow night before did not turn to rain, so trees snow covered. At some places 6 inches of snow as far as we went.
Very windy day also so need for full winter gear necessary.
