Day 2 of Hardrock course marking, more fun, with a touch of excitement. We rode our bikes to the Ice Lake trailhead and climbed ahead of the crew - who was moving really well today too.
John could NOT resist this:
More my speed:
The trail up toward Grant-Swamp Pass:
I LOVE Island Lake (someday we might even go down there for a lunch break):
Scree fields are lower on the "love" scale for me:
Contemplating Oscar's Pass across the way:
Here it is:
John decided this would be a great place for lunch. I just wish he hadn't taken my lunch along with him...
Getting some practice on the scree field (argh):
It's never pretty when it comes to scree and me:
But I'll (usually) get there:
More of the crew coming down:
Back on "solid" ground:
And now for my next trick - getting back up:
When you find a solid rock on a screen field, that's usually a great time to take a break:
There must be a better way:
Back down the way we came (to get our bikes):
Ice Lake valley - another place we should visit sometime:
Looks like my internet connection just might allow a second post today or maybe more - I'll keep going as long as it lets me!
