Twelve miles left to go

Trail Junction – Nine years ago we camped down by Little Brazil Creek. I decided to leave the trail (turn right) and camp near the creek again. Berryman Trail – Day Two, December 2020. Copyright © 2020 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.

But I’ve arrived at my destination for the day (almost). With an hour to go before sunset I need to buck-up and go find somewhere to stop for the night. I’m banking on there being water in Little Brazil Creek (downhill to the right from here) If there isn’t any, then I’ll make my way to to Harmon Spring about half a mile further on.

As it turned out, there was water in Little Brazil Creek, but finding somewhere to camp wasn’t straight forward. It’s very brushy, and I wandered around for quite sometime before finally settling for a spot a lot nearer to the trail than I like, but there was an established campsite nearby. As soon as the sun went down, which wasn’t long after I arrived, it got cold and damp. Time to break out my wood burning stove to heat water for a hot drink, my dinner, and warm my hands.
