|Upper Provo River Valley, Uinta Mountains, Utah|
That was week one of the vacation, and it was freeing and opening and, without being incredibly maudlin: life sustaining.
This week is devoted to action--hiking back to camp, as it were, but not just walking back up stream. This week is devoted to wandering in the woods around the stream--following a deer trail up a mountainside to find ice caves. I'll lead myself for now, I hope to others who can lead me further along the trail.
