Smoky Creek Surface Water?
« on: November 12, 2016, 06:14:39 AM »
Is there any surface water along Smoky Creek between the Mule Ears and Homer Wilson?  I will be there in a few days.

Thanks,
Steve

Steve,

when will you be there?

Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

Tomorrow.  I'm not sure whether to start at Homer Wilson and end at Mule Ears or vice versa.  It will be me and 3 women if I see you.

 Badknees just posted a link to my report, but the short version is that there is plenty of water right now.
