Here's one final look back at our home for the week from Mud Lake Mountain, elevation 6361'. From this birds eye view it's hard to believe there is any human activity down there at all but we of course know better. If you look closely you can see the small clearing where our camp was in the right middle-ground, just to the left of the clay banks at the apex of the first s-turn on the river. In the background of course is Big Salmon Lake and the high peaks of the Swan Range including the 9556' Holland Peak. The ride back out was bittersweet to say the least, half way back to the trailhead I was already wishing it was my first day in the Bob instead of my last. May good wild country like the Bob Marshall, Great Bear and Scapegoat Wilderness Complex flourish forever!
