Basketball and a northwest wind

Another 10-hour day under fast-moving clouds from the northwest and temps in the low 60s. A welcome change from the summer dry heat. We found bear claw marks on an aspen where a small bear – probably an older cub – had attempted to climb it and succeeded in making it about 10 feet up. Today’s transect followed a little clear mountain stream up a steep valley before breaking out into open aspen.

After dinner, Nick and I went down to the park where we found a local high school basketball player eager to start a game. So I got some good exercise and realized exactly how bad my shots have become since my team play days.

Remaining REI items arrived today, and I bought a little pack at the outdoor shop to carry water and food up the mountain on Saturday.
