Back Country Day 5

Fifty Mountain to Granite Park

Distance: 11.9 miles
Elevation Gain: 600 feet
Elevation Loss: 1,500 feet
Difficulty: Moderate

One of the guys checked in with his wife using the satellite phone she made them take in case of emergency - smart - why didn't I think of that.

Anyway, we got a bit of info about their adventures. Apparently no one has been eaten by a bear. They were rerouted a bit and had to go farther than anticipated to get an extra campsite since they had five guys instead of the allowed four per campsite so my posts may not be entirely accurate. He said it has been tougher than they expected. Lisa and I were curious how the food situation was going, blister status, and how cold it has been at night, but no news there.
