I probably would have turned back at the water/mud (although it sounds like you were able to make it around on the edge without getting your feet soaked).

With all those fallen trees, you'd think they could have made a bridge or two out of them

Not to sure what I would have done. If I have it right you did cross one bridge over the stream so needed to eventually cross back? If it was late June and I was in shorts and sandals I likely would have waded across. Considering that it did not look like bridges were much of a part of the trail turning back may well have been the best option.
As you pointed out one can never tell when something apparently simple will turn into an adventure.

If you see me in the real world, come say "Hi Justskin."

I always behave. Preferably not well.

I like having a map with me if it's my first hike, I've run into that scenario in the past and I don't like it.

I would have turned around at the mud, only because I don't like the idea of having wet socks.

A lot would depend on the time of day, weather conditions, etc. If I felt like I'd eventually get back before dark, being too tired/hungry/etc. I'd likely push on even through water, knowing if I really got desperate retracing my steps would be the ultimate out.

Besides mud can sometimes be fun!

I probably would have turned around when I reached the mud. Just go back and enjoy the lovely scenery from a different direction.

Hmmmm....I know I left that wand around here somewhere!

I like to keep going until I'm trashed. So far I have not needed to be airlifted out of a park, LOL.

Like a lot of the others, I think I would have turned back once I hit the mud.

Knowing me as an exhibitionist, I probably would have gotten totally naked, waded across the creek carrying my clothes, and when I got to the other side I would have air dried and put my clothes back on. Just saying! 😎

Funny women are incredibly sexy!
