I had a lightweight hammock I’d gotten..bot 11+- oz straps included..but, after readin an article bout grizzlies in Alaska being curious about brightly colored tents….I didn’t really rest much, crept taken a load off my feet! Figured if I dozed off, I be awoken by a grizz sniffin my backside!..I’d l8ke to go back there again….but with normal temps and maybe a pack raft!@The Trout Whisperer - Nice follow up to your first report.
You carried a hammock on the day hike? No wonder you didn't make it to the cabin. And all this time, I thought you were fending off grizzlies while we were eating lunch, not having a snooze.
Yes, those meadows grew a bit on our way back to camp, as did the width of Maple Creek.
I wouldn't mind heading back to Gneiss Creek, but I would want to do it in a year that wasn't so dry.
More like a tollway to open to that little space in your head ,sayin that at th time of th mucky creek crossings and th leg rippin n stabbing plants, I never wanna do this again…once is enough. But now, lookin back after the toll had been extracted in blood n mud, I’m anxiously awaiting my next Scatman approved adventure…( and, I’m shopping for a kilt ta boot!)I like your descriptive phrases - valliantly off we strode, Tatanka, up and downy - was the double trail for NOBO and SOBO, kind of like a freeway?
