The Falls on Long Creek are a popular destination, so I normally stop a couple of hundred yards or so further downstream to keep away from people. Today was no different. Although it was deserted when I arrived, at least half a dozen people turned up while I was taking a break.
Lunch was a cup of tea and some chicken teriyaki. I don’t like the Mountain House chicken teriyaki, it’s too sweet for my liking, so I’m using up my stocks in half-sized lunch portions. I’ll be glad when it’s all gone. I have four packs left, that’s eight yucky lunches. Maybe I can find someone who actually likes the stuff.
By 1:30 p.m. I was back on the trail and heading towards the Pole Hollow Trail. I’ve not had a lot of luck hiking that trail. On several previous hikes I’ve lost the trail and ended up bushwhacking. Hopefully, that won’t happen today.
