The Selway Bitterroot Wilderness opens up before us. The clouds arch from ridgetop to ridgetop above the Moose Creek and Selway River Canyons,hiding the taller summits.

A Mountain sits on the far side of the Salmon, watching over camp. I do not know it’s name. I doubt it has one. At 5:25 AM the top glows, as if lit from within. A halo of gold, a mountain crown, a new day.

The trek out was gorgeous; towering trees and bouquets of flowers greeting us at almost every turn. Even the mosquitoes couldn’t deter the beauty around us.

First day of the trip into Big Prairie has revealed so many things I can improve upon, just from a long walk. Most of the things I need to try and work on in the months to come are mental.
