Settler's Road was in amazing shape. The forest fires burning in the distance ahead are a bit concerning thoughFires burn along Settlers Road.Ready for another adventure in the bush?! Why not...Crossing the deep and fast Palliser River au Chavel on a bouncy log.Eric finishes the traverse - it looks much easier than it feels when you're half way across.We found a rough trail cutting along the side of a clearcut.The clear cut - there are ribbons but not in the clear cut itself. Just head north.Hiking up the clearcut.The first section of trail towards Fynn Creek from the clearcut was obvious and debris-free.Trail? Really?This is what a flood does to a back country creek with trees growing on its bank. I think there used to be a trail in there somewhere!Some short sections of trail with longer sections of blow-down and collapsed trees in between.I find that the key to 'enjoying' sections of tough travel in the bush is to lower my expectations. Slow down and just accept the fact that you're in the "suck".
