We hiked the stretch between Walupt Lake/Nannie Ridge to HWY 12 July 4 through July 7. There was obviously water at Sheep Lake, decent water at that. There was then great water at Cispus basin. AFter that we found excellent water at Snowgrass. And then a snow field near Alpine. Other than a couple “glacier/snowfield” crossings just prior to The Knife, we didn’t encounter water until McCall Basin. The next water after McCall basin was and awesome source at Hidden Spring (kinda tricky to find). From Hidden Spring to HWY 12 there is a small stream just 1 mile from the trailhead at HWY 12, and of course Shoe lake.
