Stunning.  A lot of incredible photography.  I can't believe you don't get sore and tired.

Rodent skull

Your photo captures a characteristic of many rodents including beaver and mountain beaver. The outer portion of the teeth (orange colored) is composed of a harder substance than the inner aspect. Being harder means it abrades at a slower rate which allows for the curvation usually seen.

Years ago Matt did this route in the opposite direction. I remember him saying around the Stonehenge (#3) area there was a real "Crux" area where your ass was hanging out in the air.  Basically climbing.  Did you run into that?  Great trip.  Thanks for posting.

Thanks all!  Definitely a trip I'll remember.  Sculpin, always appreciate your plant wisdom.  Tom, a recent Canyon Lake report on WTA left me feeling slightly vindicated--my path may have actually been better than following the trail, which was no doubt below me.  Nancyann--huh, didn't see anything jumping in any of the lakes, but I don't fish (!) so am not tuned into these things.  Cyclo: sore?  Haha I can finally walk again today.  BPJoe: I think Matt went CCW too, no?  But he went on the N side of Totem Ridge which is way harder than what I did.

Trying to imagine what that cliff face looks like
during the spring melt. A fantastic waterfall display I'm sure

Great report

Thanks for sharing

Neek, makes sense a slide has made things problematic.  Canyon hasn't changed much in ~75 years although may have been called Cirque Lake.  This photo from the Dwight Watson Collection inspired me to visit.

not too much runoff. This was late spring/through first days of summer of this year

if my link doesn't work it's at time stamp 40:11 after our traverse from hanging gardens to canyon lake
