Re: excellent

I always enjoy spending the night on a steep ridge with great views. Needless to say, I got a lot of camp photos.

quite the camp.

It really does look like you're about to make a very fast trip back into Wildhorse!

Re: quite the camp.

Thanks! Funny you say that, There was a two hour stretch between 11:00 and 2:00 where the wind would gust up the north slope at about 30mph. Kind of a long night.

Make Sure

Make sure you have your bearings at night when you have to pee. . . or ?
