Sunset Lake to North Fork Cascade Canyon (8 miles)
The fourth day of our honeymoon backpacking trip greeted us with a glorious sunny sky once again. We ate and packed up. Chris was feeling much better — not perfect, but definitely improved from yesterday’s altitude headaches and fatigue.
We left Sunset Lake around 9:30 and headed north on the Teton Crest Trail. Today’s scenery remained impressive. In fact, we think it got better. Just 5 minutes into the day, we walked through an amazing wildflower patch. Anna was beaming.
We climbed, pausing to take photos. Or maybe photography breaks were an excuse to catch our breath.
As we neared Hurricane Pass, the Grand Teton poked out dramatically over the ridge.
