I’m doing this write-up to give back to this fantastic online community, without which we wouldn’t have been able to do this trip.

Note the last half of the sentence in bold. Without the info, they wouldn't have been able to do the trip.

Last night at a middle school track meet in Bellingham a group of 4 men sitting behind me were excitedly talking about this Exact Trip Report, the amazing emerald lakes and how they were definitely going to get up there next year.  There may be a relatively small group of posters here but the net of viewership seems cast very wide.

Having done the Watson-Blum Traverse (and not posted a TR anywhere) one of the nicest features was the relative lack of way trails and other human impacts.  It would be a shame for it to become another Ptarmigan Traverse yet that seems to be where it's headed.  If you visit a beautiful location, where part of the appeal is that it is not crowded and still somewhat pristine, consider that the best way to maintain those attributes is to not post publicly available TRs about it.

I better do that one before it gets too crowded to enjoy!

Crap. Read about this, but not going to get there in time.

Uluru Ban.
