June 17, 2009
June 17th and as I have promised myself that strenuous hike upon relief from the Gallery this afternoon I am off. I didn't get away as early as I wanted so will have to curtail my original idea of going into Bomber Basin. I have promised Vicki I would be back shortly after 5:oo and it is now 2:00.
That doesn't leave much time and it is threatening rain already. The parking lot at the Glacier trailhead is pretty full of vehicles and I can see hikers on the switchbacks heading in the direction I want to go. That is fine but I was hopping for a more secluded hike and I opt to instead go cross country following Torrey Creek as closely as I can over glacier carved granite faces to the Torrey Creek bridge that spans the chasm on the main trail above.
