As advertised, it was a little cold, there were water crossings (and I lost my water crossing shoes along the way), there was plenty of pushing through brush in areas with no trails. Post hike feedback suggests there was also poison oak. We hit the perfect window between heavy rain, with nary a drop during the hike. Shuli almost earned a permanent ban from my hikes. . .
