Cruisey day, during which I resupplied, did some laundry and ate multiple breakfasts at Vermillion Valley Resort. Big storm rolled through in the afternoon; called it an early one just after Duck Lake junction upon spotting a relatively sheltered stand of Pines. Turned out to be a good decision, as the elements continued to rage through most of the evening, and I awoke the following morning to find my tarp surrounded by a blanket of snow.
