Last weekend I had the chance to float twenty mile with some friends. Yay! I've wanted to do this trip for a while now, so I jumped at the chance. It's a great hike up the Winner Creek Trail, over Berry Pass, and down to Twentymile Creek. The forest service put in a pretty sweet trail nearly all the way there - boardwalks, stairs, and everything. Deluxe!
With all of the snow melt, I think water levels were a little higher than normal in some of the smaller creeks crossing the trail.
If you haven't heard, it was a pretty big snow year this past winter. There was still *a lot* of snow out there! I think easily half of our hike was through snow.
Berry Pass! Picture green tundra, alpine lakes, singing birds...
and Anson ready to fight off any bears!
Twentymile was a blast. A little narrow and fast to start, but soon mellowing out into a flat, beautiful river. A great day trip for a novice pack rafter.
