below is the group at the summit marker...these pics are a bit backwards...sorry. anyway...martha, gail, sue, sandra and myself and some random dog. guess he was proud of his accomplishment as well. i'm so happy i didn't bring a dog though as the rocks would have been brutal on the paws.
bear in sheep camp. there were signs of bear along the trail, tracks, scat...this guy wandered through camp. didn't seem phased by all the people and activity in the camp. we were careful with our food and they had cache's for storage. this night i do recall remebering at 3 am that i had gorp in my pocket. a fact that kept me awake for much of the night worrying about what to do with it and if a bear would smell it and come after it. this is the camp before the long day of hiking to summit and happy camp beyond. not a good night to miss out on precious sleep. i've never found tents all that comfortable to sleep in and i fight with mummy bags as i like to be able to curl up when i sleep.
perhaps i'll post more tomorrow or the next day. i have lots of pictures from the trip. martha's memorial is not til next week...guess i will have my little memorial in photo's here.
