Aug 22, 2022Day Three – Another lazy selfie

Ready to head back to the trailhead. Copyright © 2022 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.

Using our InReach Mini satellite communicators I let Ginger know I was planning to be back at the trailhead at 2:30, p.m. That gives me three and a half hours to cover the six and a half miles and allows time for me to stop for lunch at ‘Twin Falls Creek.’

I arrived back at the trailhead at 2:20 p.m. Not bad.

Oops, I left this here on my last visit – I’ve changed the color of the line I use to suspend my backpack from. It’s much brighter and less likely to be overlooked when I scan my campsite when I leave. Copyright © 2022 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.

Before I left I had to grab the ‘trash’ I left the last time I camped here, back in May. I was a mile or so down the trail when I realized I hadn’t grabbed the line I use to hang my backpack up. It stands out fairly well in this picture, but when you are doing a quick visual check of the site it is easy to miss another bit of green. I’ve made a new line out of fluorescent yellow reflective line. That will be much harder to miss and leave behind.

I had also left a used teabag sitting on a rock. They are supposed to be biodegradable, but I don’t like leaving any trash behind. I put it in my trash bag.

I really must stop taking these lazy selfies. I have a tripod, I could take pictures of myself doing things. It seems I’ve not been bothered of late.
