We headed up Friday night to hit Englestead on Saturday the 19th. The North Fork Road was completely dry except for a small puddle at the cattle guard about 2 miles past the pavement. We spent the night at the old logging road between the two ranches described in Tom's description. We hiked down to Englestead Saturday morning. When we arrived at the bottom there was flowing water in the .5-1 cfs range, When we got to the big drop there was additional water (another .5-1 cfs) coming in form the drainage immediately above the drop point. This water was kicking out and freezing. The entire rap looked frozen with a massive ice cone at the bottom. There was a hole in the snow at the bottom where the chockstone for the second rap would be but after that it looked like you would be in a snow cave for awhile since the snow level was even with the bottom of the 300 footer. In any case we decided it would be a wet, cold affair, especially since the wind was howling and it was about 50 degrees. So we hiked back to the truck up at the North Fork Road, dropped the 300 footer, the wetsuits, and some other stuff and hiked over into Birch. Birch had about 1 cfs running in it which made the first couple of big raps pretty fun with face shots and spray kicking out. The canyon bottom had big piles of muddy snow here and there with one pile that made getting to the lip of the 10 foot downclimb exciting. A couple of wades and one icy thigh deep pool near Orderville. We went without wetsuits and were fine, whenever we got chilled we would just stop in a sunny section and warm up. Orderville was a mess. There are huge 3-4 foot deep snow drifts that are covered with 1-2 feet of mud. Slogging up Orderville was a slippery, muddy, wet mess and we only did it for 10 minutes. We found that hiking in the water was the easiest route. We took the Wild Wind Hollow exit. Nasty. Steep bushwacking with loose dirt for about 1.5 hours. There was absolutely no trail to follow. I'll never go up that ever again. We finally hit an old dirt road and followed that to the North Fork Road and hiked the final mile or two back to the truck. Grueling. Overall the trip was fun. Birch with water was nice and we didn't see or hear another group all day. Webbing was in good condition and had been replaced fairly recently.
