The hike was great. The water flowed from klon@$!*% to mammoth, so we were hiking up stream, but that was not a problem at all. We saw tons of wild life. Owls, deer, turtles, and big horn sheep. I would recommend this hike to everybody. Also fair warning to all future hikers, a good portion of the hike is in the water, which is pretty much ankle deep anyways, so plan accordingly.
