Katie Rhodes and I wanted to give the Bob Marshall Traverse a crack on the last day of the winter season. It was an absolutely perfect blue bird day. Temps started in the low 20's and rose to the 40's. 

We were unsupported and carried 5 liters of water from the start because we knew there wouldn't be much if any open water. Packed 5000 calories each. Used all of our water and had some food left over. 

Stunning sunrise on Big Slide and sunset on Wright.

Couldn't have asked for a better day.
