We have monitored the area uphill from our trail ever since we learned someone up there could be watching us like we watch the army below in the pass.
So far none of us have seen anything in that direction but snow and ice, or drifting fog or slow moving clouds. There was much more of interest going on down below.
The head of the army was far beyond us. And what we saw was moving at a normal pace. And in a couple of instances at a complete standstill. These were some tanker trucks that were replenishing themselves from mountain streams.
The Captain judged by the time spent on that chore that the water levels were running quite low.
