17 km. Waterfalls Campground to Start of Six Passes Alternate
It wasn’t raining this morning but we put on our rain clothes because we knew we would be walking thru wet brush. It started raining just as we got to the lake. This is just past the point that the 6 passes alternate starts. We want to do this to avoid walking on the unmaintained trail on the main route. Most importantly, it is supposed to be spectacular but hiking up to 8500 ft with threatening weather didn’t seem like a good idea. We want to see. So we made camp early. And if course it hasn’t rained since. But I am tired and a short day seems like the right thing to do. Plus the inReach weather forecast says it might rain at 6 but be much better weather tomorrow.
