This was indeed a great trip with a fine crew. I wish I'd had more time to talk with Lukesteg and Ebola and Country Roads and Puckerfactor and Singing Otter and Strung2tite and David and, well, everybody. The Sods are different each time I go there, and it's not always possible to plan for leisurely sharing of ideas around a campfire, but I love to see and hear Red Creek roaring down its course, so the rain is still a blessing. (Actually I love it more when I've just completed my last crossing and the sun comes out.) I'd hoped to see more wildflowers, but expect I just wasn't looking with enough care or in the right places. PF, how was DS North this trip?
CB & Adia, Maztrain & Firefly, great hiking with you as always. Nice to meet Dwight, also Max. Momo, I'm a big fan. Bearchaser and Ferret, you provided safety along the trail and in camp (no bears to speak of this trip) and good company along the way. Thanks.
