Mar 21, 2021The View from my hammock, Piney Creek Wilderness, Day Two
You are not supposed to camp this close to a water source, but this was the only spot I could find. It was getting dark when I arrived, and the hollow is so narrow, it’s impossible to not camp near the creek or the trail. I opted to put the creek between me and the trail.
It was cold overnight 33°F. The forecast was for the low forties, but I expected it to go lower, it always does. I brought my 40°F top and underquilts, and wore my merino wool baselayer, plus my puffy jacket to bed and I was warm. Though I did refuse to get out of the hammock until the sun touched the ground.
