Comments
Comments: Overall a great hike. The water on trail with subsequent rock hopping made for a tiring and slow ascent, but we made camp right before dark. The river crossings were significant on the way up (having rained only a few hours before), but were more manageable on the way down. 3 still required fording as water was still too high for a safe rock hop across.

There were good views at the top and a handful of hikers to chat with on the way down. A great hike and 42/47 for my wife!
