Hike near Cochrans Falls - GA
Went with a few friends yesterday & stayed on a friends property just a little SE of Cochrans Falls.
5 of us took a hike - started at about noon. walked some trails - planned to head to Cochrans falls from the bottom & go up but we ran out of time. was off trail for a while - it got thick and being it was taking more time we had - we decided to turn back before we ran out of daylight. Overall a good hike.
anyone here hike trail near/to Cochrans falls?
we got back to my friends property. setup camp, ate & sat around a fire.
I melted in the chair for about 2 hrs & relaxed
My setup was WBBB 1.1 DL with 3 season yeti, 3 season burrow TQ & superfly tarp. When I set up - I didn't setup the tarp too close to the ground and only closed one end. Thought about using my poncho for a top cover but I was too tired. hooked up my pack cover for a gear bag which hung along side of the hammock right at my reach and it worked great!
Temps got to a low of about 39 degrees - no winds
I had a wonderful creek right next to my bed to sing me to sleep
I was warm - sandwiched between the burrow & yeti puffy down. Only rolled over once & exposed my back. Used a down jacket for my pillow - shoved a fleece vest in the footbox. wore jeans, sweatshirt & fleece socks to sleep. so I was very happy with how warm I stayed thru the night - knowing I could have fixed up a few things to get some more warmth.
attached the few pics I took..
Sounds like a good time. Thanks for sharing
Looks like my kinda woods...all that Rhododendron and all!!!
Oh, sweet hang.
Great Report and picts. Nice hammock setup.
Is that fog in the 2nd and 3rd picts?
