Ya! We finally got to go on our long awaited spring camping trip. We did this last year and here you can read about that adventure.
|Looks like adventure gear is being loaded. I best stay close by.|
|We stopped on the shore, just before the Porkies|
|Looks like it's snowing out on the lake!|
|Oh dear, now I'm getting my pack put on.|
|We're off! We left the car at the headquarters parking lot.|
|We bumped into friendly skiers right off. Do you need a pulk sled?|
They had stayed at the yurt we're heading to.
|Change from last year's trip is our new pulk!|
That's the sled.
|My pack says the new pulk is working great!|
They assembled it with the help of Ski Pulk.com.
|But they are still slow on the uphill sections|
|They think its got about 80lbs in it.|
They keep forgetting to buy a scale.
|Here we turn off of the main trail and head to the yurt.|
|It's about a 3 mile ski in.|
|I helped set up camp.|
|Home sweet home! For 4 days at least.|
|I had to lead her to the water.|
|No one had walked down here in a while. It was deep!|
|Arly got a hole broken open.|
|Kinda hard to fill the bag in the small hole...|
|...so some scooping was in order.|
|Since I didn't manage to catch any wild game,|
I had to settle for lame kibble.
|Later, we went on a short adventure ski. We found a quinzee!|
|I wonder if kids had stayed here?|
|We went to visit at the Union River 8 Bunk|
but no-one was home.
|We finished the day off with back-country bounding.|
|My pack is sampling boxed wine.|
They think bottles are too heavy, even in the pulk.
|It didn't take long for me to wind down.|
|Next morning - cereal with nido (whole dried milk)|
|I love to camp!|
Day 2 post to continue...
