We started out with the weather at a chilly 40F. The first river crossing was in near knee deep water for me (knee deep for my daughter). The hike was a nice walk around and under trees, mostly cedars, with slight ups and downs in elevation. The paths were still quite wet even though there hadn't been any rain for almost a week. Very well marked at trail departures. The second crossing was in ankle deep water near the Tracks 2 site. Things warmed up as we went and it was pleasantly warm with a nice breeze when we finished. This hike may become an annual thing for Thanksgiving.
