Lost and Found: Nothing. 
Comments: A big loop through the range to help a friend finish her final seven peaks for the list, and she crushed it. Aside from one awesome thunderstorm which rolled through while we were between Klem and Rand, this was a mostly dry and sunny trek. Only a few very minor areas of mud along these trails. Great views from the various ledge outlooks. I was surprised to see so few people out. We only encountered one other group of three people all day. This was also a reminder to myself that DRQT is my favorite trail in the range, with its beautiful and diverse terrain. BPT is still my least favorite. :P
