Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The upper crossing of the Little River was interesting. Some of our party made a big jump across the current. Others of us waded. The easiest might have been to tightrope the fallen tree but a slip would ruin your day. Dont know why the lower tree has been removed. This crossing has become much harder. Other crossings were fine.

Comments
Comments: Hooked up with BillC and MikeL but they zoomed ahead to also go to Garfield. Monorail at 4k ft in places but with the recent cold weather it was very stable. Used microspikes in a few places. Glad I had them but they were not really necessary. Great views all day. Thanks to BarbaraR and DaveC for a fine day
