Where I stayed
I packed up and started the roughly 7-mile walk back to the trailhead. When I got near the bridge I ran into the Boy Scout group that had borrowed my water filter. I walked with them for a while but they were too fast for me and left me behind. I found out they hadn't summitted either. They ran into too much snow following the usual route up Gunsight Pass.
When I arrived back at the trailhead the Boy Scout group was by their car. It wouldn't start. They had tried getting jumps from a couple people, with no success. It sounded to me as though the other people just hadn't been patient enough so I gave them a jump and had them wait a few minutes before trying to start it. That did the trick.
Having done my good deed for the day, I drove to Kemmerer, WY and got a room.
