Shellrock pass is located deep in the Pasayten Wilderness. A couple of autumns ago, we camped in the basin below it for an entire week, summiting the peaks around it. The day we crossed over Shellrock pass, it snowed several inches overnight, leaving the trail slippery, the rocks icy, and the golden larch trees covered in a white blanket. It was a gorgeous and idyllic scenery.
The cables in this shawl remind me of the meandering trail up the slope, over rocks, under trees and around obstacles.
