And deep it was. I had to leave my camera, clothes, and other gear behind because I was up to my waist within a couple of steps. I wanted to get to the end of the pool to see how easy the next section of the creek would be to hike. When I got there, the answer was clear. Nigh near impassable until winter arrives and the vegetation dies back. It was very overgrown and I didn’t fancy bushwhacking through the dense brush. I’ve done that before, and it’s not a lot of fun.
I ended up scrambling up the side of the hollow to the east (right of frame) and scouting out for camping spots, going in a big circle to get back and collect my gear.
Overall, it looks like my research paid off and I’d arrived at one of the few clear-ish sections on the creek. It was time to have lunch and then check upstream.
