    Friday Creek is in the middle of the picture. Metal creek flows from the mountains towards the glacier.

    Yup, the one moving really fast is Metal Creek.

    I have to know which route you took!

    I have found a way to cross only Jim and Friday before Metal but none fewer.

    Usually I find myself crossing, 1) Jim Creek; 2) Wednesday Creek; and 3) Friday Creek. Then there is Metal Creek. Where did the Wednesday Creek name come from? I don't know for sure. That is just what we have ended up calling the second river/creek crossing. It seems that I saw it on a map once, but maps show all kinds of tributaries and crossings, lakes and other such stuff that I have never seen.

    Default Dont forget Fall Creek

    just past Wolf Point.
    I keep thinking about following your "Wednesday" creek up to see where it starts. I'm thinking it is drainage from the swamp that the main channel of Friday Creek runs into but haven't confirmed that.

    There is a faster way off the mountain, might hurt a little though.

    Default Wednesday Creek

    I think that you're right Mike. There is a ton of overflow even now running over and around Friday.

    Looks like Wolf point is checkpoint 07/14 if I am reading the map right.
