Memorial Day

We hiked up Broad's Fork in Big Cottonwood Canyon. The trailhead is next to the one for Lake Blanche.
Alvin's pack was a lot heavier than mine! It's the only way I can keep up with him.

Miles slept contentedly most of the way. When his head flopped to the side, his neck got a mean sunburn. Poor thing!

It's about 2 1/2 miles to the cirque.

It's rather steep on the way down, and that, combined with the extra passenger, did a number on Alvin's knees. Don't worry. He recovers quickly.
