Thanks for the comment! I didn’t see any fish in West Cross Creek so therefore I never got out the pole. There could have been small ones here and there, but I looked hard and didn’t see anything. The farther you make your way down to Reeds, the thicker and steeper that drainage gets. It isn’t anything that can’t be done. You’d almost be better off cutting directly east once you cleared the shoulder of Middle Mountain. I wanted to make sure to see the water “falls” again, so therefore I went all the way to Reeds.
Thanks! We did just get this loop done last weekend. Went in on Saturday and came out on Monday. I had friends who camped near Silverthorne and said they got hit hard with rain Friday and Saturday. When we were at Harvey Lake Saturday night we got rain around 2:30 pm, 9:30 pm and 4:30 am. Just sprinkles, nothing heavy. Localized indeed! I’m ready for some blue bird September skies!
