Day 5 - Teton Crest Trail (3)

In the morning our tent was frozen due to the rainfall on the day before. After having breakfast we dried our tent and packed our backpacks. Our way led us first down North Fork Cascade. Hiking was quite pleasant as a lot of wildflowers grew next to the trail.

After a while we arrived at a trail junction and took the trail to South Fork Cascade. The camping area of South Fork Cascade already started shortly after the junction, however, we wanted to hike to the top of the camping area as the next day's leg was supposed to be quite streneous. Hiking South Fork Cascade was also quite pleasant as the scenary was very nice.

Although this day's leg was rather short in distance it was still quite streneous. However, we got rewarded with a wonderful campiste at the upper South Fork Cascade close to two small creeks.

Our campsite was behind the trees on the right hand side of the picture

As we arrived quite early at the campsite Matthias decided to do a short sidetrip to Avalanche Divide which turned out to be fantastic.

Regina and I stayed at the campsite to relax.
