At most of the creek crossings the crossing was tough since all the culverts have been removed and going down and then back up the ravines was difficult. The weather sort of cooperated, but it drizzled off and on all day. It was definitely cloudy and overcast. It was interesting to see much of the area that was closed after the 1996 flooding.
Although it was a physically very tough day, it was a lot of fun, although I’m not ready to repeat it anytime soon.
