I'm not crossing that. Usually she just finds a way around but today she sat down first.
There are a couple of small streams that cross the trail a small pool. Today they were all dry. and this was the first water she found.

Pretty good hike. Kelley did OK after a slow start but I think the humidity bothered her- it did me. 2 hours
