We started from the north end at mile marker 208 at 7:15 am and a comfortable 81 degrees. We spent 95% of the creekbed portion of the hike in the water. Most of the water was close to air temperature.
There were a lot of waist deep sections in the northern half with one section that required swimming. This section was between 5 and 20 feet long depending on how much we used hand holds on the rock face to keep our heads out of the water.
I lost the bottom for 5 feet on another section but my partner then took a bypass around it.
The highlight of the trip was when we came around a corner and saw a tree next to the creek that was full of coatamundis. My UV filter had fogged on the inside and by the time I got it off, they had climbed several hundred feet away. We counted 11 but there could have been a few more.
