My Locale Norcal
About Me Hey, I'm looking for tips to go lighter and ideas for more trips. I've only been backpacking for 4 years and just recently realized my pack could've been MUCH lighter. I usually do two 9 day trips, three 5 day trips and a few weekend trips a year so I'd like to make the most out of the little time I have. I need to branch out of the same 'ol romps I frequent.

Did anyone go up to mirror lake?
I regret not going up and was hoping to see someone else's pictures of it. And was it really a scramble?

Love it
I'm super picky about pillows. I have a cocoon and my head rocks back and forth and I thought this one might do the same but I was happy to find that it does not. After the cocoon I switched to...
