Playing Out A Hunch

Not really a trip report but just a few photos to share.. You gotta love it when you pour over a few topo maps looking for someplace new to explore, and have an off-trail hunch that turns out to be true...

Some pretty sweet views only a 10 minute bushwhack from the state trail...










Hey well what do you know, a stashed Grumman (with no paddles)...





Do you see what I see?




Yes, I see a paddle...




It worked out ok...




Sunset was pretty awesome...



Campsite wasnít bad either...







Morning was pretty nice also...









Morning pano...

How many times did you end up bunched up at the bottom of your tent?

Haha I was actually pretty flat, but the photos do kinda make it look like itís at an angle.

Agreed.. A little Silver Sun and a delicious Newburgh Giga Boss is definitely one a hell of a way to get the day started!

Agreed, itís fun to watch the little mini tornado cones of fog rise up & twist away, almost ghostly like.

Thanks John, years of practice of going to the same places again & again year after year and over & over again I guess, and itís always fun to find someplace new for next year.

Thanks Justin. Don't they make a paddle that telescopes down like the old fishing kits? Bring one of those next time and a gas operated PFD.

I have an oar from an old Sevylor inflatable raft that screws together & breaks down into a packable size which I bring with me on occasion, works well but it’s much more fun to make your own paddle.

Sweet spot to unwind by the fire. I sure miss your videos but I know how that goes. I have some info on a place you might be interested in. Get a hold of me or ask Russ about Lance's info.

Thanks bro, maybe someday. I still have a ton of video from Colorado to go through from last year that I’d like to get done. I’m still waiting for the software to get a bit easier with less hassle & hic-ups as I’ve had trouble with in the past. For now it’s just some short vids on the facebook, bummer I can’t share them here also.

Did you have a Colorado thread? We were there in Sept. It had been 40 tears since I lived there. Some big changes....some not. Red Rocks didn't change much. In fact, it even smelled the same!
