Today was more uphill, from 7800 to 10500 feet elevation.  Most of the day was on-trail, with the last bit contouring over to Grouse Lake.  Saw a few people on the trail, and two others camped at Grouse Lake.


Journal Entry:  Relaxed start this morning—on the trail around 9:30.  Uphill climb, with expanding views of Gardiner, Cotter, and Clarence King.  Left the trail after enjoying tree-blocked views of Granite Basin.  Easy off-trail to Grouse Lake, got here around 4:00.  We can see the first pass for tomorrow across the lake.  Tomorrow is a longer day; we’ll try to get an earlier start!
