I wanted to get in a visit to Fossil before the summer crowds. There were about 20 young boys getting ready in the parking lot so I boogied on down to get on some time at the falls before they arrived. It worked out well, it was just me and 3 small groups of lady day hikers at the falls. I swam, ate, swam again before heading on down the trail. Beyond the falls I only saw 2 hikers the entire time. I jogged a good portion of this. At the spot where I crossed the creek I made sure to jump in one last time before the hike out. A group appeared as I was getting out and I encouraged them to jump in, which they did. The wind and wet clothes made for a pleasant walk along the closed FR back to the TH. The sun was toasty but temps were not too hot, just warm enough to enjoy the water. Water temps were absolutely perfect. The area is surprisingly clean, for now. Didn't start noticing trash until hike out on the dirt road.
