I was semi successful in getting the permit I was looking for. I am doing a 7 night trip with my teenage daughter in Aug. The spots I got on my permit are good at first then I just picked what was available to reserve "a" permit hoping to swap out the spots I don't want for better ones when we get there. it would be helpful to have a back-up plan. My 1st choice is to hike the whole Death Canyon, explore Alaska Basin with a side trip to Static peak, head to Icefloe & Snowdrift lakes area, then onto Paintbrush divide and back around to Jenny lake, then up to Delta/Surprise lakes & exploring Garnet canyon. The permit I have has : day1 - Phelps lake, day2 - Fox Creek pass, day3 & 4 - Alaska Basin. After that it really isn't good, so if someone could help me out with an alternate route I would appreciated it. Thanks
