Five days of walking on tussocks, rocks and through rivers took its toll on our feet. Ryan's ankle was swollen and his feet covered in duct tape. Luckily for us the walking was really good up the West fork of the Little Delta.
Across from a little cabin that seemed grossly out of place on the river in the middle of nowhere we cut up an unnamed drainage following a creek with iron stained rocks. The clouds threatened rain, but only produced brief sprinkles.
We climbed to another 6,000 foot pass through the clouds.
We got to the Wood River at about 7 and were all excited to start floating. We debated going up Grizzly creek, or floating another 4+ miles to Little Grizzly creek across from the closed down Denali Wilderness Lodge. The Wood river was running swift through small braided channels, there was quite a bit of intermittent but scooting through shallow sections.
