Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 169 (Lembert Dome Stream Crossings – 3/8)

There were a surprising number of stream crossings we had to navigate

During the spring thaw, there are a good number of stream crossings along the Lembert Dome Trail.

We understood that during the time we were hiking there would be snow melt and with that would come the need to navigate through wet areas. When we came across a stream, that was not surprising. We did not anticipate that we would have to do this as many times as we did. I also did not appreciate how much water the streams would carry and how wide some of the crossings would be.

We would have to search up and down the banks of the streams to find the most suitable and narrow spot often adding a large fallen branch/log to the debris to help provide a dry foothold.

When does a stream become classified as a river?
