I like hiking again

Slack packing is so much fun. So much fun that I like hiking again. Today was our third day with whisper light packs and for the most part the terrain was easy. We were able to do almost 40 miles in three days. We finished the three day stint with a nice 13.2 mile hike today with rolling ups and downs and nice wide paths. We even summited a 3000ft mountain and didn’t even realize it. Lots of trail maintenance today. We are in awe of the maintainers and the hard work they do.

Some really pretty picture moments also on our hike.  

    
    
 
And some not so pleasant moments like dead moose and huge leeches.  

   
All in all it was a wonderful day. Heading out into the woods tomorrow this time with Batman and the ladies. Service might be limited. 

Happy Hiking.
