Day 4 was transit day home.

 

I decided to retrace the famous NO.7 Elk Alley Run .... much to my fortune, I did not bump into any elk; the

route was much slower but with the snow the scenery was great down through Clint Wells and Payson.

 

Lower Lake Mary was covered in snow, Upper Lake Mary did have some open water with a couple of

kayakers on it and Morman Lake had some open water ...
