Around 8 we made some coffee and began to prepare the cabin for our departure. Things readied and the day ahead, we started hiking at 11. Instead of following the trail curving the opposite direction of our destination, we bushwhacked down a cliff through grizzly habitats and stopped for lunch before climbing down a thousand feet by means of balancing across down trees. Although the short cut lessened the distance of our journey, we did not return to the ranger station until 1900. The Hobo Party was pushed back a day to allow us more time to work on the lyrics to our song.
