On a Saturday with periodic rain showers, five of us set off from Sumallo Grove. Two more had hiked in to Delacy campsite the night before and met us there. One very water logged section in the first two kilometres gave us some difficulty and the Delacy campsite showed signs of recent and extensive flooding, but otherwise the trail was dry. As we progressed down the trail, we ran into more and more fallen trees to step over, climb over, crawl under, bushwhack through and scramble around. We counted 170-180 fallen trees obstructing the trail between the trailhead and Harlequin Flats campsite, which led to Rick calling me “Deadfall Daphne”.
