Yep, it certainly was roaring… and boiling and crashing and raging. It was incredible to see and be in the presence of such powerfully flowing water. And, mind you, this is a creek! I always think of a creek as small and gently flowing. But, this is up at about 5000 feet in Kings Canyon National Park in the Sierras in June in one of the biggest water flows in years. Anyway, I had the pleasure of hiking up along the roaring currents trail for 4 miles or so before the flow leveled off in Paradise Valley. I usually like the quiet of the mountains, but on this hike, the creeks constant roar was my friend. Can you hear it?
