Second try today to make it the entire way down Hoolie Bacon to the Upper La Barge Box entrance . Only made it to Horse Ridge again. Tortilla Creek is not cross-able right now without getting knee high in freezing cold water (which we did), however, Hoolie Bacon is beat to shit at the moment and actually I would say to completely avoid it right now. The snow has broken numerous holly and cat claw trees/bushes through out the hike and most blocked the trail (go figure lol). Once you start climbing up to Horse Ridge the trail turns into a muddy creek from all of the snow melt and then once you hit the first ridge the trail turns to snow. Extremely slow going and we decided to cut it short on the top of Horse Ridge. Also, between the first ridge and the top of Horse Ridge there is an area roughly 30 yards wide where a flash flood or possibly an avalanche came down the side of the mountain and destroyed every bush in it's path. Everything in that area is broken apart/snapped or fallen over. I have never seen anything like it before. Would like to head back and finish it when everything dries up and give it another try.
