Water Crossing Notes: No issues on any crossings, including little river. USGS Gauge #01137500 (ammo @ bethlehem) had water at 248 cfs at time of crossing. Usually 180 is indicative of good conditions. I did go in the river, I misjudged a rock. Kiwi, seeing my error, was able to take a slightly different line and stayed dry.

Comments: A FINE day in Henry's Woods. Knowing conditions from prior TR's, we went out like Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark, knowing the snowstorm was coming. Not much to add from Bradygirl1's trip report, as its now snowing and conditions will rapidly change. Unbelievable speedway conditions today to grab this trio. That brings me to 43/48 for December. The only supplemental data to the prior TR is in the water crossing notes - however one must always write a trip report after they hike when there is snow on the ground - or god kills a kitten. Please, think of the kittens.
