Sounds like you had a lot of close calls all thru your trip.
The prospect of either an acl or mcl injury would be scary enough back home but in the
backcountry its much more dangerous.
If it had been an acl at least your where in a pretty well traveled corridor unlike Dumbbell
Lakes which rarely get visited.
That chute coming down ST Pass can be tricky luckly you stopped before it got worse.
I enjoyed seeing those tarns again they are pretty as is the view to the west.
Read about the fire in the Tehipite area but didn't expect to see so much smoke!
You're welcome, maverick.
The knee deal could have been a disaster, fortunately it proved to be a relatively mild mcl sprain. The popping sound was a first for me. I feared a cartilage tear initially. I was pretty sure the acl was okay given the circumstances (my knee was fully flexed when the twist occurred as my foot went sideways out from under my butt). All in all, it was a great trip, as good as they get. I do, however, question my wisdom doing these passes.
