Finishing off the last of the birthday whiskey and will pick up my last resupply box at the Benchmark Ranch in the morning.

Sun, 1Sep - The Rivers of the Scapegoat Wilderness
It was cold in the morning as I made a wet crossing of the Dearborn River but it quickly grew hot as I followed up the drainage of the Dearborn on overgrown trail and fire burned forest. Up and over Straight Creek Pass and even newer burned forest as I followed the Straight Creek drainage toward Benchmark. Every time I stopped I was attacked by flies which I guess is due to the horses that I see tracks from. Camping just short of the Wood Creek Hogback along the Straight Creek.
