Day 5  Upper Titcomb Lake to Seneca Lake
Day 6  Seneca Lake to Trailhead
Days 5 & 6  Hiking Out
On the sunny morning after our summit day, we laid out wet clothes and rope on the rocks to dry as we ate breakfast and prepared to pack up for the hike back out to Seneca Lake.

After depleting four days of freeze-dried food, we hoped our packs would be a little lighter on the way out . . . but they sure didn't seem to be!

There were many varieties of beautiful alpine flowers everywhere we went. 
The weather was perfect  on this late June trip in the Wind River Range -- warm sunny days and crisp nights.  As usual, we discussed what we could leave behind on a future similar trip; or what we would recommend to others making the same hike.

Of course, we took enough clothing and equipment to be comfortable under most conditions.  Except for a couple of extra days of freeze-dried food, we used everything we took. 
You cannot stay on the summit forever;
you have to come down again.
So why bother in the first place?  Just this:
What is above knows what is below,
but what is below does not know what is above.
One climbs, one sees.
One descends, one sees no longer,
but one has seen.
There is an art of conducting oneself
in the lower regions
by the memory of what one saw higher up.
When one can no longer see, one can at least still know.
