For those considering the NF Little Wind, a few notes from our run last Saturday. First, be sure to buy a tribal fishing license and keep a low profile. Access is touchy on the Wind River Reservation and these runs are too good to lose. Second, hike directly down to the river from the overlook and then hike upstream on the domes. We lost a good chunk of time trying to go upstream as we descended. Third, be aware that there is some manky ass shiat on that run, particularly in the section immediately above the waterfalls. This mank is not pictured or discussed in the TRs, but it felt like the crux to me (then again I'm from Idaho where we don't paddle if it's under 1,000 cfs). Fourth, the Winds are infested with a strange variety of blood-sucking brid; definitely not mosquitos, they're far to large. Last, do get an early start because it's not what I would call a conventional day trip.

Since I'm spilling the beans, I should also admit that we hiked out above the waterfalls because we were running out of daylight. It seemed like we had higher flow than the groups who went in last year. At high flows the waterfall gorge could be sketchy, give it a good scout before you commit.

All in all, a worthy run for solid class V boaters. Just be aware that it's not all slides and waterfalls in there.

Loved the POV on Yule. And ditto the comments on SUP-erman (Gavere).
