This weekend it’s back to Piney Creek Wilderness. I plan to visit my favorite spot by Table Rock Lake. It’s predicted to be fairly cold overnight (34-36°F), so hopefully that will put people off. With the state parks closed there were people camping at the trailhead, which is fine by me, as long as it is quiet where I’m going to be camping. It’s going to be mild (not warm) during the day, so I think this is going to be a pleasant trip.

I’ll be taking my new found route down an ‘unmaintained’ trail to get to Piney Creek, and I think I’ll come back the long way, which has a hard climb at the end. I would have liked to have spent two nights here, but a deanery meeting (via Zoom) Saturday morning, meant I couldn’t get away Friday. I have my new camp chair with me, and I think that’s it on the new gear. After being cold last time out I packed my winter underquilt, my sleeping bag liner, and my down jacket.
