Thank you for that information, Justm, that is reassuring. I leave early tomorrow a.m. for 4-5 days wandering in southern Emigrant. At this point it sounds like a glorious trip, but I have steeled myself for the thick of the mosquitoes. Perhaps they will pick me up and carry me over Cherry Creek!

when you come upon the trail sign that says , camp 100 ft from the creek, go a little further until you see the creek get slow and wide. The trail will be right by the creek this at that point. You'll see a large tree across that portion of the river. Go just past that and you'll see the river cuts back, there's a section of smooth rock . Head across that way and you'll see the large, easily crossed log from there.

Thank you Justm. Was this the tree?

Your directions were quite good. However, I chose to wade since it was hot and wading looked fun. This log would have saved me the 15 minutes needed to change in and out of my wading gear, and cost me a cooling off in the shallows!

I don't think that was the one. There must be a few different spots to cross. I'm glad you had a great trip !!!
