This was probably my favorite section so far, at least the first half! Got my start at 0700, and passed all the forest clean up along the way. HUGE piles of debris - lots of hard work going on there. Made the slow ascent to Alfa Fia tank right as the rain hit. Pulled out the rain gear and filled up my water bottles. The tank was a bit silty when filling my filter bag, but beautiful. Slogged my way in the rain to the turnoff to Bismarck Lake. Right off the trail was a beautiful boma under a large tree, so set up camp there as the rain stopped. Next morning hit the trail again at 0700 and made my way through the beautiful aspen forest. It gradually gave way to more exposed and dry sections. Just past Kelly tank were lots of chill cows laying on the trail, just barely glancing my way. The clouds rolled in as I began the long road walk. I was trying to outrun the rain as I made my way to the end of the passage and my dad waiting to pick me up. He had driven through heavy rain and hail to get me, but thankfully it had not hit me! Beautiful passage for sure, and got it done in 2 days.
