The Bob had everything - pristine rivers, dense tree covered mountains, burn areas, bears and adventure. I even got treated to every season of weather.

Locked ranger cabins spotted the wilderness -- I always came across these mid day and wished they were unlocked.

Didn't work - I checked.

My air mattress developed a growth. I made lemonade of the situation by turning it around and using it to elevate my sore feet. Exped has a two year warranty and they  shipped me a new mattress - really awesome customer service. But now I miss my bubble.

Wolf tracks. I saw lots bear tracks too. Kinda creepy when you're hiking by your lonesome miles from civilization.

I had a couple soggy days.

Cloudy vistas. Serene.

I lost the trail for a good amount of time. I took what I called he mountain goat alternate - sticking to the side of a slippery hill with microspikes. Then, out of no where a mountain goat appeared and led me back to the trail. Magic animal.

Cute, but behind those black eyes must be a soul of pure evil. There's probably a reason satanists like their skulls.

The clouds cleared and I enjoyed a snow and rain free night.

Clear skies for the Chinese wall.

I have a love hate relationship with equestrians on trail. I like that they clear the trail of fallen trees. I don't like that they shit all over the place and their hooves tear up the dirt and make a deep wet muddy mess.

I survived the Bob.
