After the side trip up Yale, the rest of the day was just about getting to a campsite. The constraint now was arriving at the Interlaken trailhead at about 9am on day 7. There did not seem to be good sites for a while beyond Harvard Lakes, so that was the target, but that was still a challenge:
As we were packing up we had a short snowfall and soon got on our way as we new we still had hiking to do. For the next 3 miles was particularly exhausting for P even though it was all downhill so we stopped at Silver Creek to filter cook dinner and recover. This worked well and by 5:30 we were ready to start hiking again and hikes 3 miles up the next hill to Harvard lakes where we could get in bed before the 8:30 sunset. Several campsites but we avoided the one that had large piles of bear poo which got us a bit worried hence decided to skip brushing teeth that night. Hung the Ursack away from camp and see what happens.
