Well, @glaciernps it's been an awesome 3 days of hiking, learning, observing and being surprised by nature, thank you!
Tracy, so grateful for your love of outdoors and generosity. I wouldn't be here Now if not for your wisdom & courage. Seriously, those bear spray lessons came in handy when I saw the grizzly cub 30 feet in front of me on the path. I didn't have to use it, but knowing what to do made the situation easier to handle. No less scary, yet a lot more calm. So I didn't look like this! I'd been turned back from 2 trails already that morning due to bears. All around me and hadn't seen a one! Until I did. Trail #3 unfinished for the day, yet a very happy camper!
The water was freezing, but the adrenaline was still pumping and I needed a controlled shock. How can you not play in water so clean and clear? I did take the full plunge and had to be reminded to breathe after it was so frigid. Just what I needed to cap off a killer day!
