First time thru questions

I am going thru with 5 of my club guys 26 oct.
37's in a taco, small tire rig is 35" .
I have been doing recon on here and youtube for the preferred lines thru the water crossings.
Every single thing I read say's "follow someones line that knows" I would like to see them first as its always good to study.
And who knows if there will be someone to watch...
Given it looks like less than 3' deep according to one of the recent post's here, I would like to see where NOT to go. Just so we are not "that guy"!
Any links to check out?
Thanks in advance, cb

Going in Friday if I’m not too distracted by Committee I’ll try to remember to video the best line for ya. Riding passenger, can’t find time to work on my junk.

1st Creek Crossing coming from Eagle Lakes just stay 5-10’ off where it spills over.

Good advice.
Going up the trail crossing stay left on #1 (you can usually see the water drop down stream right to the left of a rock dam, cross the dam.

Going out Committee, cross going up stream at a 45* angle going toward toward/between the trees on other side of river (this seems kinda weird if you are not following someone). You kinda hug the left a bit then cut over.

I was up there a couple weeks ago, went from Eagle Lakes road to committee. Creek crossings are a non issue, pretty much go wherever you want. The lake is near empty so I can't imagine the flows will go up any. Winch hill one gnarly/awesome.

Right now it's only a 25% chance through next Wednesday. And warming to 50's during day.
That's nothing to worry about. Just go prepared and don't like the forest on fire.
