The Chinese Wall - Bob Marshall Wilderness
This photo is looking towards Red Butte. The plan for the second day was to go around the left side of Red Butte, hike up to White River Pass, and get to the summit of Haystack Mountain. Haystack is the southern end of the Chinese Wall and a spot I picked out for a premium shot of the wall.
This is where we had our first change of plans. We were on our way up to the pass, but between me not being in the greatest shape this summer, a heavy ass pack, a couple thousand feet elevation gain still, and water availability not guaranteed, we thought it was best to ditch the side trip and not kill ourselves for the rest of the trip.
We headed back down and once we got back to the main trail we found a nice spot to camp along the river and crashed.
