Ok, sing it with me... "Climb every mountain........"
Cold stream water and a good taping. Even with the walking, I think that is the best my ankle has handled a sprain. Oh - don't forget the Ibuprofen, otherwise known as Vitamin I!
The perfect lunch stop.
A couple things surprised me about this mountain range. The number of flowers (to be seen in the next blog post) and the waterfalls. There were a lot of waterfalls, and this was a pretty double one we camped near on night three. Otherwise known as the water that wasn't supposed to be, as we didn't think we'd find water that night and had carried quite a bit from our afternoon stop.
We had walked through this valley, and were almost to the pass. After sitting on his perch Joe thought he would try to stand on it. All three of us vetoed that idea immediately. There really isn't anything on the other side of the rock.
We walked above treeline a lot, especially the first half. We walked this whole ridgeline. It's hard to walk on a ridge line as there are views on each side of you. I have to keep stopping and looking around, because if I look around while walking I'm sure to fall all the way down the mountain!
