Hillgard Basin Day 4

The day before was a rest day. And now we go big. As we gained Echo Peak Ridge I was asked if we were going up to the top. I remarked that it was not my cup of tea. I am too nervous with exposure. Then what turned out to be a small walk over to peek over the edge turned into a adventure to see if we could find Expedition Pass from the West. And it did turn out … finally. We had our moments. High Winds and storms. Feeling totally lost. Feeling like a small ant in a big area. Snow and almost falling off a drift. Stumbling down scree. Looking for grizzly. And finally victory with a big feast back at camp.  I slept well. It was good … very good indeed.
