Went back to Sproule Creek after work one evening for a rainy hike. The water is low right now, leading to some mini waterfalls among the creek bed. The final bridge is still out, but with the low water, it is possible to cross the creek and continue the last 1km to the Mill Site.

Panorama at Smallwood/Bigwood

Hiked up to the Smallwood/Bigwood lookout last week! Beautiful views and clouds of mosquitoes at the top. Trail is snow-free with just a handful of deadfall along the route.
