June 24th we saw numerous mule & whitetail deer, a Cinnamon brown bear and a enormous elk buck all before 11am. Then our legs were whipped into a bloody mess by overgrown brush on the trail up to to Spotted Bear Pass. After lunch at icy My Lake we walked in awe under the magnificent Chinese Wall… but before long the wall lost its appeal… it was a never-ending wall and we were only inching along on slushy snow and mud.
Thankfully we had some good glissading once we finally started our descent…. but it was many more miles before we could make our camp along the Sun River.
Glacier and The Bob have been gorgeous but all the snow, mud and river crossings make for slow travel and constantly WET feet.
