This was such a nice trip; no great mileage but we saw some beautiful country and gave ourselves enough time to enjoy it. We shared some good food and fun company: thanks Ken, John and Matt.
The water at Boulder Creek Lakes was warm enough to actually swim and stay in for a while, versus the usual jump in and race to get back out.
Backpacking is when I get to catch up on some sleep and I was so perfectly comfortable in my hammock ,listening to the creek and the guys muffled campfire conversation, that I slept from 7pm to 7am uninterrupted :0 on Friday night , with no aid ; ).
Can't wait to get out again and take in some more of this.
Thanks Ken for getting us up there in your neck of the woods.
