To start out there was work. And all the bullshit things that come with it. After that we headed for the trailhead. It was about 7 o’clock when we headed out on foot. We figured we could get an hour up the trail and pitch camp. A great head start, right?
The trail wasn’t very accommodating unless you were riding a four legged mammal that could stumble around the dried mosh pits. Horses destroy wilderness, I am convinced of that now. Spring months must of been a mud bath. Very disappointing.
And the pack was heavy. Very very heavy. I thought to myself that maybe we should have done a couple hikes before we set out on foot for a 4 day adventure.
