Saturday I did some 400's at the track before Ben's arrival. In the PM we ran Granite Mountain. Sunday we hit the big alpine of the Little French Creek area for a bushwhack and some jogging totaling 24-ish miles and around 6K of vertical in 7+ hours- with about 800 calories to eat. My goal is to do nothing for the next 6 days but eat. I need a taper from my taper.

|Hazard Lake in its autumn glory. Hard Butte rises to the west.|
|Wolf hunter's camp. We would see him several hours later and get a demo of his dying rabbit call.|
|Le Petit Francais. North Face of Bruin Mountain looms above.|
|Hot dogging on Center Ridge. After 4hrs+, we finally get to run some trail.|
|BB heading for the pasta, elk burgers and fruit we stashed in the truck. His head bobs among the Seven Devils on the distant horizon.|
