Thanks for the report. I am trying to finalize my plans for late Feb/early March and this seems like a great trip to emulate. For telling the rangers where you were camping was it just Zone C04 for near the Dodson trailhead and C05 for Blue Creek?  I am nervous they aren't going to give me a pass if I don't have all the details nailed down.

Are the campsites obvious or did you have to search for them?

This will also be my first multiday solo.

No issues from the government shutdown?

Yes, campsites are obvious.
