Comments: Man, it was wicked wet out there at times today and I became a river rat at multiple points. Went up North Twin first to get the big crossing of the Little River outta the way early, good choice as it was raging on the descent many hours later. There was some sections of dry trail, but that was before it poured 3-4 times today. Lotta puddles everywhere and so many scary slick bog bridges, most of the rocks and ledges are somewhere between dry and damp and still respectably grippy using good footwork. Only people seen were at Zealand Hut. Twinway is a puddle fest, I would strongly recommend bringing extra socks. Lend-a-Hand Trail is basically a stream for the first 2 miles and Firewardens is in great condition
