9.6. The horses are not excited about the new energy pellets we have for them. But they eat it up. The Trail takes us above the timberline again and we find the Creed Cutoff after we passe a couple of lakes. We meet a fisherman who predicts that I will not be safe walking in the snow with my boots, without crampons and icepic. And at all costs I should not try to go to the knife edge, cause horses could not get through there. Ok, its still a long distance till there, so I don’t worry about it know. The trail zigzags up the mountain and we cross a couple of passes. The highest one being on 3930 m or 12900 feet. From there we hit the Ivy Creek trail and decent to Goos Lake where we camp for the night. Knifes Edge is still 8 mils further to the west. We wont get there... the Trail will be closed in two days.
