Comments: Planned an easy below-treeline day elsewhere but got sidetracked by the bluebird skies above the northern presies and changed plans :) to the Great Gulf area!!!! Awesome day!!! Light wind was quite comfy. Just enough clouds to block the sun!!! Watched some brave souls swim in Peabody River under the suspension bridge emerging ruddy-skinned from the chilly water!

First time on the Six Husbands for me - a little scary in the boulders!!!! Pulse was running FAST!!! Had Jefferson to ourselves - amazing. But, when we got to Adams found a HUGE loud crowd so we scurried quickly down to Star Lake to watch the Star Lake Moose munching away. Then, saw nobody for the Buttress/Great Gulf descent. Beautiful open boulder field on Buttress Trail was quite a treat. Route took 11 hrs - last half hour under headlamp. Great day with Forestgnome - thanks for going with the plan change!!!!
