Although the duration of this training trip is short, we try to pack as much into it as possible. Participants were able to try various shelters, stove systems and meal ideas.
We hiked through some rugged country, on trail the first full day of hiking.
It was nice casual hiking with our light packs. I won the lightest pack going into the field "contest" with a 14.75 lb Golite Ion including 3 days food and stove (esbit), Group first aid kit and Satellite phone along with personal gear.
We camped high on the ridge of Sunset peak. After eating a quick dinner we had a curriculum discussion in the still sunny rocks above our camp.
There is a reason they call it sunset peak.
