Day 74 - Benson Pass

It was another soggy day, but sometimes the rain reveals things the sun cannot.

It was a cloudy and cool hike up to Benson Pass, and the rain held off for the most part.

It started to sprinkle atop the pass and I met the most cheerful ranger yet. 

She was all smiles. 

She was all smiles. 

The fog cast a mystical shroud upon the already magical landscape.

And I spent part of the afternoon daydreaming about friends and places back home. 

And a few moments daydreaming about how this grouse might taste if battered and fried.

I noticed snow upon some peaks we passed.

On days such as this, it helps to count one's blessings.
