We thought today was going to be leisurely, hah! We climbed and descended 6000ish feet. Right at the end we saw some amazing scenery around us, but mostly the rest was a slog. We dropped down low into Idaho midday an then spent the afternoon and evening climbing back out.
In sadder news, we met Vocal (last seen in East Glacier) taking a day off beside the trail. He woke up last night vomiting and still wasn’t able to keep anything down by lunch. He was in a good spot though, beside a pass that gets a bit of traffic. Some ATVers even had stopped in to chat and were going to drop by tomorrow. He’ll be fine!
