You can just see the creek to the left of the frame. There was no direct access on that side, as there was a ten foot (or so) drop down to the creek. Hot water for breakfast is heating up on the Fancee Feest stove, and my Garmin InReach (satellite texting/locator beacon) is hanging up in a tree trying to get a clear bit of sky to obtain a GPS lock and send my morning ‘All Okay’ message to Ginger. You can see how much lower I set the tarp on the windward side of the hammock.
According to the forecast (now several days old) I can expect a lot of rain and some high winds from the south from around two p.m. onwards through the night. Let’s hope it arrives late so I can get to my next (and final) overnight stop for this trip–Beecher Spring–at the abandoned Edward Beecher Recreation Area. My plan is to climb up the ridge to the south of the spring and camp. The ridge should give me some shelter from the wind and weather.
