    ... bag portered and thought we would "share" the hauling up of the second backpack. Not genius. Dave portered it the entire way, of course. We had four liters of water. Not genius either.

It’s a relief from the forested, teetering, rock-faced cliffs I’ve been scaling all this time. There are flowers everywhere! Blues, purples, oranges, yellow, white—all shapes and sizes!
