Backpacking Adventure 2019!
Thanks for stopping by...
Welcome to my blog! The timing coincides with my return from vacation so that's where I am going to start.
This was my second backpacking trip. The first time I planned on bringing a camera but got nervous about the weight so brought my iPhone instead, and while that did the trick, I wanted to be able to do more. I took my camera, 50mm lens, extra battery and stopped at Action Camera, my favorite camera store in Reno and picked up a Gorillapod. I carried it all in a small bag in my pack and am already looking for the perfect daypack for next years hike (recommendations welcome!).
As a kid, I loved having a summer birthday because we were typically on vacation. This year I woke up on my birthday in a tent at Lake of the Woods in Desolation Wilderness on the PCT! Gifted with a small bouquet of wild flowers, and a pre-pancake breakfast hike to the top of the peak to see what we could see made the morning pretty spectacular.
