Sep 11, 2022Day Two – Hammock camping at Piney Creek Wilderness

Hammock camping at Piney Creek Wilderness – No one has been here since my last visit, July 2021. Solo backpacking at Piney Creek Wilderness, September 2022. Copyright © 2022 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.

It rained overnight. Not enough to make any difference, but it was nice to hear the pitter-patter of rain on my tarp.

It’s good to be back, even if the lake is too low to be practical for swimming right where I am. I tried last night without a lot of success. I have a plan to deal with that … I’m going to explore eastwards and check for alternate camping spots and places where swimming will be easier. The lake should get 10-20ft. deeper as I head east (according to the map). We’ll see.

It looks like no one has been here in the past year. Apart from being filled with dead leaves, the fireplace is exactly as I left it.
