The first descent of Wassen Creek through the proposed Devil's Staircase Wilderness exceeded expectations. Read the account by clicking on "see more at . . . " below.
Easy to hit the Dregs with water level in Wassen

Winding, low gradient bedrock and some logjams. Sounds about right for Wassen. Walking along the creekbed is always my preferred mode of travel. Great place for chacos and more than a full day to get to the old growth flats from the Smith. I have always been curious about the creek from wasson lake to the flats.

I loved your difficult adventure better you than me. With your great writing I felt like I was there. Sounds like the most beautiful place. Sorry about your dog having to wait in the car. Bet a happy dog upon rescue late that night!!
