Vermilion Valley Resort is a great place to stop for a night.  Good breakfast of pancakes, then back on the boat for the ride across the lake.  On the trail around 9:30, a bit late for our 10 miles today.  Climbed up Bear Ridge, 2200 ft of unrelenting switchbacks.  Long drop to Bear Creek, then upstream to just past Hilgard Branch where we’ll camp for tonight.
