CS846 to Marie Lake (846 to 866.5)
Daily miles: 20.5
Walk through flooded Evolution Valley, mosquitos want my blood. Trying to take care of my body, which is hungry and tired and bleeding from where I postholed through the snow and mashed my shin against a boulder (it’s fine, promise). Ford the formidable Evolution Creek and set my sights on Selden Pass. Talk to my friends Killer and Sunny. Make the pass during evening, sun low on the Seven Gables and shimmering off Marie Lake.
