Went up to Turkey Spring, 5900' and made Camp.2.5 miles total Hike. The Forestry service had fence off the Turkey Spring and meadow for preservation and had piped a line outside the perimeter to a Tank I though would be used as a tub in summer. Camped north of the Meadow anyways. Patches of snow here and there, Temps had climbed to 60 or so. Went looking for sheds but with the temps and Snow falls probably not falling yet, did not find any. Got to test the new Gear though. Winter Burrow kept me nice and toasty, burnt the plastic clips off the Zebra pot in the fire(Fire Proof Now) but it worked great with alky stove and fire pit, worth the extra weight. Used the snow bank to get the wine chilled and the Hobo Pie had thawed by dinner time, all was good. Figured I would hang the food Bag to keep mice and Raccoons away, bears probably still sleeping. Saturday night got down to 34* It was a good Hike, Plan on going out this week end Too.
    ====> NICE trip report! Didja find any sheds???

    Great inspiration!

    I went backpacking with my daughter this past weekend up West Fork of Oak Creek. It was a dumb idea because there was so much snow and ice up there, plus the water was so high. We managed to hike a few miles up the trail and slept in our hammock, but on the way back home, we fell into the river (the rocks and trees had iced over during the night). I had to carry my daughter across a few more crossings, but we made it out safely. If I get any time, I'll post pics.
