Okay, plans. Because it's fine to hike solo as long as peeps know where to find your body. Friday morning I'm starting early—watered up, packed in calorie-laden snacks, bear spray clip firmly in place. I think I'll head up Slate Canyon to the .062 junction toward Rock Canyon campground. Once I reach the campground, I'll locate the Provo Peak trailhead and begin the real work to the 11,068ft elevation summit; a tedious 2Kft elevation gain in 1.5 miles.
