Thanks for the great photos! I did 62 miles of the Wonderland Trail for my 40th birthday a few years back. What an amazing place. Your photo of you (or someone?) on the log gave me chills, as it brought back great memories, including a very similar photo of me.
I don't care how many hundred miles of prep I did in Ohio, going uphill/downhill with 50# sucks at 7,000 feet!
