And now for a little something different, I thought all you out west people might like to see lots of greenery and non-muddy water :)

The weather in KY has been really weird for October, lots of sun, highs in the 80s, perfect outdoors weather. My mother in law was going to be in town, so I got to go enjoy a quiet weekend in the Big South Fork area of southern KY.

First night's sunset


nice morning hike, a little chilly in shorts and a t-shirt


A view of the river and 2nd nights campsite


Some fall colors still on the trees


My new packraft purchased after some inspiration reading trips reports here


I still need to process my DSLR pics, hopefully have a couple worth adding to the post

lots more pics/details here http://backpackandbeer.blogspot.com/2016/11/blue-heron-big-south-fork.html

This reminds me of trails I've been on back in Indiana. Beautiful! I enjoyed the full write-up on your blog.

I managed to find a little bit of water that was deep enough to test it out. I got the packraft off of Massdrop for $115 shipped. I've seen it there twice in the last couple of months. Phil @ sectionhiker reviewed it a couple months ago which put it on my radar.
