A Wrong Turn

So, everything was going fine, the trail was interesting, with glacial bogs below and remnants from WW I fortifications.

I was doing the route finding and thought this was the trail, visible below going up the slope.

The first sign that something was wrong:  mountain goats, below.

Alan was getting worried as the trail got steeper.

The German climbers visible in photo below turned around and said that it was too steep.
Then we knew that we had made a mistake and were really on the wrong trail.

Mr Mike below came along just at that moment to save the day.
He talked us down off the cliff!
Oh, and did I mention it was Alan's big birthday?
