We arrived early in the morning and there were very few people their, mainly those fishing in the spillway. The trash along the main fishing areas was unbelievable.  There were baby diapers, food containers, plastic bottles, and broken glass everywhere.  Very sad.

The cable bridge was washed out.  Many trails have encountered damage as well.  We climbed down and followed the water for a better hike.

We saw several deer, frogs, and at least four snakes.  I believe one could have been a rattler, but not positive.  Brown and big was enough warning for me to stay away.
