Comments
Comments: Original plan was just East Sleeper but rocks on Downes very slippery so I figured what the hell I'm here so....Fairly easy hike until South Slide but the views were great. After that no issues just hot humid no breeze at all today. Water levels low on Downes but water is cold but so good...drank my fill on this hot day several times! 3rd try for East Sleeper, 1St deep snow from Woncelot forgot snow shoes. 2nd Downes running too high to cross. 2.3 mile road hike back to car & iced cold beer! Great Day in the woods.
