Our goal today was to beat the rain to Marblemount. The rain won. We left the motel at 6:15am.
Joe and Vern started down. Neal and I decided to get into the car. It was cold, misting and full of cars.
After a short brisk descent and a climb to Rainy Pass, Vern decided to join us in the car. We still stopped at several places to take in the views.
Everyone made it safely into Marblemount. Our accommodations were a little unusual, we had two rooms with a common area and a common bath. The floor in the common area sloped to one side and our room sloped from the foot of the bed to the head by several inches. It was the only place to stay for 20 miles.
