Waterville Valley Cascades (B Group)

A little story for this one... I found this hike in the AMC top 50 day hikes book.  It sounded nice, 3.4 to 4.8 depending on the route, a water crossing (which admittedly did say it could be a challenge in high water), and beautiful waterfalls.

The hike was fantastic.  No bugs, and for May, that's pretty awesome... The waterfalls exceeded my expectations, and so did the water crossing over by Boulder Path.  This was an unexpected RIVER CROSSING that was thigh high water!!  Good thing everyone laughed about it, after the shock of the cold water and the return of our boots and socks to our wet, cold and muddy feet.

It was a great hike, and I would do it again, but perhaps as an out and back to the Livermore Rd trail, which is where you can see the FULL water fall, upper and lower.
