Stage BM 1/11/2016
It is a crisp sunny morning, great hiking weather.
We are going to look for lot of section markers today.
Here is one on a side of this canyon.
This one shows the section corners.
Canyon is nice.
It is getting narrow.
There is a dry waterfall ahead. Some will go left some right. We will try to levitate over the falls.
Hersch can do it.
