Thanks, Gorpchomper.  It was a short trip, but a good one. Just the right length for my wife. As far as the West Nile, I'm actually doing amazingly well. I get better every week. The only lingering effects seem to be occasional low stamina, intermittent joint pain in my hands and feet, and annoyingly persistent hand tremors. But none of it seems serious enough to keep me away from the wilderness, especially if the trajectory of improvement continues as it has so far. Looking forward to reading more trip reports from you guys' trips into the Guads.

What a great family photo! It belongs on a Christmas/Holiday card for sure. :eusa_clap:


Something like the attachment, only much less ham-handedly done and more professional looking.
