    Great photos.

    I kept waiting for a few shots of the rare female hiker, but I guess you kept those for yourself.

    Thanks for the report, Pizza. Looks like a good time. I really need to get up to the SHT again.

    The reference to the state park and showers was particularly useful, as we need to be clean and sweet smelling human beings by the time we get home, so I've booked a site at that park for the last night out, in the walk-in camping area. Do you suppose we are reasonably assured of being able to find hanging trees, or ought we to bring a tent for insurance?

    thanks
    Hey Grizz, I stayed at walk-in site number 24. That one could probably accommodate a couple hammocks. I didn't get a real good look at sites 23 and 25 which are the other two walk in sites. You might want to bring a tent just in case but chances are you'll probably be able to find some trees to hang from. The drive in sites that I scoped out driving around the loop weren't too good for hammocks because most of the trees were too small or outside the camping space but the walk in site I was at worked out fine.

    I added part 1 of the video to the first post in this thread. This was a 4.1 mile hike from Woods Creek Parking Lot to the Cliff Creek campsite.

    +1 on the pants. After I saw them on a weekend trip with Pizza last year, I bought a pair (Extra Long even!) for myself. Well made, LOTS of pockets, nice weight. What can I say, Pizza has good taste!
