    Hanging in the Norse Peak Wilderness

    Just back from a few days in the Norse Peak Wilderness of the central Cascades in Washington. Love saying "wilderness" way cool.

    On the way in


    My arboreal home for the trip


    The object of the trip


    As usual I was the only hanger and the hammock was the object of much discussion. The old timers were impressed with the comfort and ease of set up, I hope they stick with tents or bedrolls so I don't have any competition for the "perfect" pair of trees.

    Still need to take a few minutes to put the ridge line together so I can have a consistent hang.

    Looks like a nice trip! And +1 on them sticking to ground dwelling. Things were easier out west when the whole gang was not hanging, sometimes close by usable ( right distance apart etc) trees were kind of scarce. Though lack of usable trees is not much of a problem in this part of the country.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I really like seeing you do things by horseback.
