I went back up to Crosby Manitou State Park with my cousin this past weekend. We had a blast. It was hot and muggy on Saturday. Got to cover all of the trail in the northern part of park this time. We camped at campsite #1 which was a pretty neat site. Some people must have been watching Survivor Man because they built a two sided shelter out of pine branches at our camp. They did a pretty good job. The trail was really rugged, particularly Humpback Trail. Wow, lots of tough uphill stretches and huge boulders to climb over. At one point we had to sit down on a big boulder and slide down. Banged up my shin real good and twisted my ankle a couple times along the way too...OUCH!
I was pretty beat by the end of the trip but it was worth it. I was really glad to have the hammock on this trip. It rained all night Saturday night and it was nice not to have to pack up muddy gear the next morning. My cousin had a tent and his gear was covered in mud and dirt. I was packed up in less than half the time it took him and I didn't even get my hands dirty. How cool is that!
Will add few pics to my gallery.
