I love the entire WPLPR watershed, but one thing I've noticed is that it can push quite a volume of water down its streambed. Even back in November, the last time I was up, the water was higher there than anywhere else - I had to be very careful wading. I second the boulder-hopping scenario described above, and would add that it seems, at least to me, to be particularly slick as well - I always end up with a new gash or bruise on this stream. However, it's great, particularly in the warmer months, when it seems to be a bit cooler than other streams.
