    LBD from the hammock

    L=Lunch, B=Breakfast, D=Dinner

    Took my new Aarn backpack and TtoT Switch Back hammock for their first overnighter yesterday.
    Headed up to the South Platte River and jumped on segment 2 of the Colorado Trail to get up out
    of the canyon then bushwhacked along the canyon rim until I found a good hanging spot with a view.

    Weather was perfect high 60s during the day and low 40s at night.

    The pack was a dream to carry even with 3L of water and the SB was very comfortable. Since I sleep
    on my side with knees bent in this hammock I'm thinking a full length UQ might be too long.

    My TV for the evening. Beautiful Sunset.

    You look very content with life.

    Hi russmay,
    Thanks for commenting on my trip report. Hammocking and getting out in the fresh air has reduced
    my blood pressure and improved my outlook on life.

    Hi Alan,
    Thanks, I kinda feel bad posting such perfect weather pictures knowing the whole SE is under the gun with tornadoes.

    Photo trip reports are kinda hard on HF unless you do videos.
    FB just works better for me hopefully peeps will still check them out.

    If you're ever up in the Denver area look me up.
    I've got a lot of little Out and Back's (pun intended) like this
