Can you find the three hikers in this photo? They are almost lost in the visual noise. This was our first taste of hiking through scree, which is loose rock on a sloped surface. It's slow, tedious, and boring, and we've lots more coming up. At least the trail is well marked; the red- and white-painted stripes are easy to see.
