    Obsidian Basin 10/7-10/9 Picture Heavy

    First off. A big thank you to Bigfoot2 for setting this trip up.
    Sorry you have to pull out. But thank you because then we all got to go

    Weird1, Gavinar, Rip Waverly and I hit the Obsidian Basin Friday Evening.
    We hiked 3-4 miles into our first camp. First nights low temp was 27 degrees..
    Needless to say I was in my 30 degree quilt and a little less than comfortable.

    The second day we woke up and worked on finding sunny spots so we could defrost our water filters and get breakfast.
    Didn't manage to hit the trail till about 11am. From there all I can say is the Pictures do not do this place justice. It is a mind blowing beautiful place.

    We are still upload pictures but here is a good taste.
    Saturday night Bgraybackpacker joined us for a night.
    Sunday morning Weird1 and I broke from the group to head
    out as they were going to head off to another location for
    another night involving some hotsprings. So... To be continued?

    Fantastic! Is that the 3 Sisters?
    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.
    Romans 8:18,21-22
