When I regain the forest on the other side the sun has hit the area and bathed it in a seemingly warm glow and feeling. It is definitely drier and the wildflowers such as Lupine thrive here at the forest edge. There are a few more Whitebark Pines alive here than farther out on the Union Pass road. Blister rust and Bark beetles have not gotten to them all. That is a good sign.
