Sunrise along Slims River. We got a late start on our first day and were only able to walk about 10 of the 14 miles (22.5 km) towards the official campsite at Canada Creek. So we pitched our tent for the night on a huge barren alluvial fan. The wind was ripping here, but fortunately we had brought our sturdier winter tent for this purpose, and after building a small rock wall for good measure we were all set for the night.
