Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Last 2 crossings prior to slide were crossed by just walking through. Discharge rate was about 850ish when we crossed and was not unsafe. Had crocs but just decided (mostly on my own) to walk through rather than change footwear. rock hopping with dry feet was not an option but it was so warm we just embraced wet feet and really enjoyed the cold fun walking through. It was a blast.

Comments: Trails were in really great condition. Most mud was just after black pond. Rest was pleasantly 95% mud free. We chose to go up slide which was completely dry and ice free. No snow or ice until the big rock junction with Brutus bushwack. Wore spikes from there to summit and back to same spot. Went down Brutus which was snow free.

Fantastic May hike to owl. Conditions and weather were as good as it gets for May. Only 2 other solo hikers today. Our group of 3 had a fabulous day.
