Went on a site survey; got destroyed by chiggers n ticks more than I ever have on any single hike. Land owners were clear cutters. Awful.

The red was looking great yesterday. Wish I had time to go to Muir today.

Hang Em High Horse Camp, or White Oak Boat in; north a bit from there near Horse Lick Creek is the S-tree primitive camps, it's actually quite nice.
If you want large, then of course you're back to state park and lake campgrounds.

Water for Days
« on: February 23, 2018, 10:56:13 PM »

Everything is a waterfall in the Red right now, simply beautiful. There's so much water everywhere. I spent this past Sunday wondering around in the woods, mostly off trail and it was a great time.

Here's a video highlight of the trip.

I never knew the term "Liesegang Rings" so I learned something today, thanks.

that looks like a ton of water coming off Eagle Point.

Looks like a good day, thanks for the report

I remember a couple years ago kayaking the upper section the same day as a rain and there were so many waterfalls. It was truly wonderful and really felt like a "National Wild River" designation was warranted. Even found a rare lingzhi mushroom on a tree, a sure sign of a healthy forest.

I was in Spaas Creek Valley on Saturday. The creek was a good foot higher on the way back. The difference between shin deep and hip deep. The current was also increased.

The valley did remind me a lot of the Smokys, with every crevice flowing with amazing flow.

The mud pits were muddy. and deeper. It's a valley I love and hate. Especially when the mud tries to steal my boots.

I assume you mean the upper Red?  I keep looking for more information on that before I go this spring.
