The Journey Begins

I got to Drain Creek at about 2:00 today. Shortly after getting here it started to rain, and it got very windy. By 6 it had started to snow sideways. Tried to fish but it was much too windy. I heard a ground squirrel bark up on hill. Will try to catch some tomorrow. I put up a quick shelter, had a nice fire and am warm and dry. I am hoping for better weather tomorrow.

PS, there was a bull caribou just up river of the gravel bar landing strip when we landed.
