Despite all the outdoor time and mileage I’ve been enjoying, the craving for a multi-day outing has continued to grow in me. The weekend climbing trips in the camper definitely satisfy part of the desire, but when my mind wanders back to past backpack trips, the image of putting up a shelter and lying down when I’m too tired to hike becomes rosy and romantic. Somehow it’s fitting that my first overnight hike of the summer be accompanied by a long, steady rain.
I’ve added more of the story to the picture notes:
The total hike was 32 miles. I might have to try a couple more to make sure I still like it 🙂
