I didn’t realize, but I should have known I’d have to cross the Rio again. It’s a loop you know. My maps, which I don’t study until the night before, told me the river could be “50 feet wide here,” and so I stuffed my things into my trash bag pack liner once again.
I tried crossing by foot with my pack unbuckled, but was lifted off my feet. So I surrendered once again! But you know, I got this.
From here I took the “Wild Scenic River Alternate,”which adds a bit more mileage to this section, but it’s totally worth the effort!
