Tried the Grand traverse in a day twice this year, the second time as my birthday-epic! Learned that the season for this to go is probably the ~2nd and 3rd weeks of august. Can't wait to go back and try again next year, hopefully i will make it this time!

Great photos and TR.  You'll have it dialed by next year.  The usually stable Aug weather was kind of snowy this year, so don't feel too bad.

p.s. I love the bear pic.

Great write up.  Thanks for sharing it.

It's always hard to know if you made the right call by bailing.  I remind myself that any time I bail it just means I get to enjoy the adventure another time when I go back to complete it.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
