thanks for posting this! i'm heading up to that area in august to hike
the only portion of the pct i missed last year, due to the puzzle fire
closure. i had to skip from mckenzie pass to woodpecker ridge, which is
just a couple miles south of the milk creek crossing. i've been debating
whether to end my hike at woodpecker ridge, or hike the rest of the way
to ollalie (even though i did that bit last year), but if milk creek is
impassible, i guess that makes my decision a bit simpler!
