Back to tour the geyser field and an old outlaw house and small cave. They spent winter in the small cabin and cooked on a small geyser. No fire wood so the outlaws put a pot on a small geyser and the boiling water heated their dinner. I look at maps and do a little planning of the back trail route I want to take. 11k of road and the 29k of trail. After only 3k I come across the first snow field on the road. Portage gear across and think I should kept it on the bike. Second snow field is steep and I am portaging again. Next snow field has water problems on both sides. It takes a bit of scouting to fine places I can cross. Some portaging and pushing has me across. Road is snow covered and a river at times. Few spots I can ride. I push on, working over and around snow fields. Worst is sinking deep into mud. I finally get to the end of road. It is all ready 7:00. I look down the valley and see snow fields and an active river. My toes have been feeling the normal waterproofness of the boots and are splashing around. I head down the trail and look at the small mountain hut across the river. More snow fields and I use the GPS to keep me on the trail. When I find a nice flat place I camp.
Love and kisses
