So Chris and I did a 15-mile backpacking trip on the Wild Oak trail in the George Washington National Forest. It was past of training for our upcoming El Capitan Expedition in Yosemite. But after we got to our camping spot with 4 hours of light left, we said fuck it and hiked out. Pizza and beer called us.
Section hiking part of the Sheltowee Trace Trail, a 282-mile back country trail through Kentucky and a little of Tennessee, with Ray. I told him all that rope was unnecessary, but he insisted on taking it.
Ray checks his GPS for our location while looking overlooking the interstate.
Decided to play weekend warrior and backpack in North Carolina’s Pisgah National Forest alone. This photo of the waterfall is early in the morning. I camped below it, woke up really early, ate breakfast and then hiked to the top of the mountain to see it.
Below is in Wilson Creek, where I had to cross to start my backpacking loop.
