The road to Bull Pen has been graded since my last trip here in November. It's still pretty rough in the last half mile.
The parking lot was completely empty Saturday morning at 7AM. I made the first crossing quickly and left the sandals on through the second crossing which is less than a 1/4 mile past the first. The third crossing came 40 minutes later followed by the fourth another 45 minutes later. All 4 crossings were wet for me. Water is still a bit high, but super clear. 40 minutes past the fourth crossing I dropped down the somewhat hidden wash to the creek. The small campsite there was empty. I continued on upstream another 3/4 mile or so to find the next larger campsite also empty, so I thought. Upon further inspection I found two hanging packs and several pairs of boots, but no people or tents. The fire pit was still hot. I assumed the folks had gone upstream in their water shoes, maybe in search of Maiden Falls. They were likely not camping that night, but I fell back to the other site and began setup. I quickly caught dinner right in front of camp. Later on, I went upstream a bit and caught more dinner. The fishing in this area is superb! Nice fire, cool breezy night, and bright sun the next morning, led to an enjoyable hike out. I didn't see any people until the 2nd crossing on the way back. The parking lot had about a dozen cars.
