Cond. Req - Evolution

Post by BESON » Mon Aug 12, 2019 12:01 pm

I'm hoping to make a trip from Florence to Evolution Valley later this week. I've tried looking but not been able to find much in the way of recent trip reports/conditions. I expect that mosquitos will be very bad. I was more wondering, though, about the creek crossing in Evolution Meadow, which sounds like it can often be bad and just thought I'd inquire.

Crossed Evolution on 8/10. It's passable at the trail no need to go through the meadow. Water level not above knees, (I'm 5'7") but is moving quickly. Its the only boots off crossing in the valley... everything else had logs/rocks to hop across. Plenty of mosquito free camping along the river before climb up to Evolution Valley. McClure had decent Mosquitos wore net while hiking thru... minimal mosquitos at Evolution Lake and higher.
