Thank you everyone for the excellent replies and encouragement. I really appreciate it!
David Roberts - Thank you for your reply with your story and history of the area! I don't know how I managed to miss your post but I did! It was definitely appreciated and I would love to hear more about your travels into the Arrigetch. I don't know if you had read through the earlier sections of the trip report but Brownell himself had actually chimed in and gave some wonderfull history. This thread is a gold mine of Arrigetch lore!
