6am to 8:45pm.
Just before Blaurock Pass to Iceberg Lake Pass.
Almost 15 hours to walk 10 miles! Yes, it was hard and I am tired. But not the most exhausted I’ve been. Maybe I am getting used to this.
So many steep climbs today! Blaurock Pass, Sentinel Pass, plus several unnamed ones. We had lots of snow walking and used microspikes.
Plus we walked on two glaciers. Gannet Glacier and Grasshopper Glacier.
Just after we passed this tarn it started raining for the first time since we’ve been in the Winds. Dry weather is not normal. We have been lucky. The rain stopped after 10 minutes.
We set up our tents right on Iceberg Lake Pass and just got into them as it started raining. Hard! Plus lightening which was far enough away to not be scary. What perfect timing.
Why Not, your photography is splendid. From the photos to me this is the most appealing scenery of the three trails you are doing with Wired and Rock’in.
Am enjoying your blog and pictures as always. Hiking across those glaciers looks pretty daunting! Glad you made it through safely.
Perfect timing on the tent escape.
Wired says “go that way” – Love that navigation photo.
