There’s my destination in sight. Straight ahead across the lake. The lake was pretty full, and before I went on, I back-tracked a ways up Piney Creek and found a nice clear feeder creek (dribble really), to fill up my water bottle and a half-gallon pouch to last me for the night.

Sunrise on Day Three.

One more Piney Creek Panorama for luck – I’m not sure that I’ll ever tire of this view, though maybe I do need to stop taking pictures of it. Each time I look the play of the light is different. 2 pictures

Decay – Leaves, shells and a stick covered with frost, and some monofilament fishing line leading to an unseen dead bird in the water.

Sunlight brushing the tops of the hills – the start of Day Two at Piney Creek Wilderness.

Frosty Morning – The predicted overnight temperatures were 30°F. It dropped to 21°F. Fortunately, I’d anticipated this and I was nice and warm in my hammock.
