We have only two water sources today: Watson lake and the water Ann stashed at Brockway pass. Heavy water makes for weary feet, and Ann is already using ibuprofen to cope with foot pain. We take frequent breaks to gaze at the lake below.
There really is not much water on this section. Watson lake is good, with a filter, though I might have held out for Watson creek if I’d known it was running. Otherwise we see no water until we reach Brockway pass where Ann recovers her stash, which means we can camp and continue for 16 more waterless miles tomorrow.
I’ve been hanging our food diligently – and so far we’ve had no trouble with bears or rodents.
