The weather this weekend has been wonderful (especially considering it is still February). However, we’ve not had a chance to get away backpacking as we had commitments in town on Saturday. Today we went on a short hike at Busiek, hiking a little over three miles with around 700ft of elevation climbed. Remaining true to our recent experiences, we managed to miss the trail and wander around a bit. We took off along a little used trail that finally petered out, which meant we had to backtrack.

Part of today’s exercise was to try out a hammock before going backpacking. I discovered that finding a camping place for a hammock is just as hard as finding one for a tent. D’oh! I was hoping that it was going to be a lot easier.
