7/1/2015 – Trip purpose: NSS tourist

Thunder River was probably as high as it can get. If it gets any higher, the excess just flows over into Carroll River. The shortcuts over to Thunder Falls were completely summped, and water from them was flowing through some rocks into the Carroll River headwater pond.
