We made it. Thirty tough miles, snow storms, 75 mile per hour winds and a giant 30 pound back-pack. Who am I? This was my first back-packing experience and I am not going to lie, going back out on another trek is not at the top of my list. Thank god I have been farming all summer because if not, there is no way I could have survived this hike.
While we were on our hands and knees climbing a 5260 ft mountain I had a strange song stuck in my head…… does anyone else know the Darkness song “It seemed like such a good idea at the time”?
Yep, it was around the snow storm that I had that song stuck in my head. But never fear, I was in good company and aside from the crazy weather, I had a great time.
Looking rather happy despite the fact we had just found out we had 3 more hours of hiking left. We thought we were done for the night.
Tough looking group
Camp food never tasted so good!
Thanks to Brian, Tamsen and Taylor for getting me through my first back packing experience.
Our celebration dinner was not steak and mashed potatoes, but a close second:
Burger and sweet potato fries.
Back to home cooking tonight.
