This was my most strenuous hike yet. I didn’t plan it to be but I didn’t know I was going to hike on the wrong side of the river. After going so far I didn’t want to go back the way I came since I could see a trail on the South side. But I had to go farther up river than I realized before I could cross it without getting into water above my knees. The beauty is all around you though and hard to convey.
