Camped at Gordon Hirabayashi Friday Night and hit the trail early Saturday morning. There were probably 20 - 30 water crossings on this trip (literally water flowing EVERYWHERE - a beautiful sight!!), and at first I tried to avoid wet feet by walking up and down the banks looking for a place to cross. ](*,) Got to the crossing near Hutch's Pool, where it was knee deep, and had to just suck it up and remove shoes. After that, just got the feet wet to save time. There was a LOT of deadfall all over the trail, and lost it a few times at water crossings, but followed the app to get me back on track. The snow started getting really thick at around mile 178, and although I had footsteps to follow, it was very slow going as the snow was a bit slickery. :scared: After Romero Pass, it was a very slow, careful trip for me, but thoroughly enjoyed it. Stopped at the Mt. Lemmon General Store, as well as the Sawmill Run for a burger, beer and fries!
