|Smoke woke me up on this day. I kept an eye out for fire.
|First crossing of the Boise River was a bit early in the day for my tastes.
|The second crossing was a bit scary with the speed of the water.
|This rock was a perfect couch to put boots back on after yet another crossing.
|The smoke conceals far off mountains.
|Flat wooden bridges protected my boots from mud and the bog from my boots.
|One last climb before the alpine lake section of my day.
|Spangle Lake – the view a bit spoiled by smoke.
|The trail was below the level of Spangle Lake.
|Spangle Lake from where the trail began to climb above it.
|I believe that’s Mount Everly, from the other side than the one I usually see it.
|This was not my best pitch, but it got me through a very cold night.
