Day 2

Big Timber to Camp Siberia/Anderson Camp

Disaster - turns out that we needed to protect the food from squirrels just as much as from bears. Notice all the gnawed holes in my empty food bags! Good thing I had extra. Also, I got an angry rash from some new socks

Breakfast coffee The culprit in the food theft? Maybe.

Silty feet after fording a river

We walked through a scary area where ALL the trees were blown down. Maybe from the huge windstorm about 9 years ago?

Purifying water with Kelly's squeeze device

We camped for the night at Camp Siberia, also marked as Anderson Camp on some maps. I guess Camp Siberia doesn't sound so good! Drinking water was a trek away, but through a beautiful meadow.

We all climbed this boulder
