Clear blue skies beautiful day. Great day, but I’m spent. First Ball Pass then on to Floe Lake. The exposed climb through a burn to Floe Lake totally zapped me. About 4 miles climbing gradually in the sun followed by a couple miles of steep ascent made jello of my legs. Floe lake was beautiful, so that and a late lunch helped. Then down to Numa Creek campsite which was crowded, hot and stuffy. Backtrack wanted to push over tumbling pass to tumbling river campsite and though I had very little left in the tank, I agreed it was the best option. Yote and Backtrack were great and helped me get up and over the pass. On top we were rewarded by glaciers with blue ice.Time for bed now… it is 11:30
