From this point I work my way up and over Red pass. Note to others that do this route, there is a trail up to red pass from Red pond. I scrambled part way up the talus field to discover the trail. This will be a theme for me this trip. This section well well once on the trail to Red pass. Red pass, there is a trail, but not much of one getting down to the real trail.
This is the back side of Red pass. Yes there is a trail through there. Things go well from here for awhile. Once you get close to the river you will encounter three major blowdown areas. They have been flagged, so getting through in the light should be no problem.
On the trail up the middle fork I saw these to items. The water coming out was not warm. I can not imagine anyone using either one.
Here are two photos from the bridge that I cross over the middle fork river.
Two photos from further up valley. I really enjoyed hiking up the middle fork trail. It was a bit long, but beautiful sites along the way.
