A big crew of us left after work for a Friday night sub-24 hour backpacking trip. I’ve been wanting a trip like this for a long time.
We hiked the five miles in the dark – no headlamps. Had a camp fire. Whiskey. Stayed up late. Crawled into bed under huge oak trees.
Saturday, most of us packed up and headed out early. A few stayed – and reported river otters.
I didn’t take any photos. I hardly brought gear. Bag, pad, two burritos and not much else.
It was a great time with good friends.
