In the crystal water, caddis fly housings with a touch of shiny mica!
From the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica:
Soggy slips mean wet socks.
Mountain goat droppings.
Almost at the top...
Watermelon snow (the pink is an algae) with snow cups- good for walking steps!
There might have been some skinny-dipping. Ice cold, crystal clear snow melt and spring water.
Made it to the top! Proof:
Back was a little easier!
What an amazing, wonderful, great, extraordinary, superlative experience in the Monashee Mountains of British Columbia. (Next time I will try not to have a ginormous rotten head cold.)
