Woods Road @ 1982.9 13.5 miles slackpacking
Total mileage 959.3
I’m so thankful. I’m slackpacking today. I climbed over 4 summits with just a day pack. I was really enjoying the day with the light pack. There was also a chance of thunderstorms this afternoon and it gave me the opportunity to move faster and safer. I was above tree line for a few miles and didn’t want to be stuck up there if thunderstorms were going to roll through.
The views were amazing! I had sunshine until about 1 pm. I could see dark clouds rolling in behind me so I didn’t dally on the open ridgeline that I was hiking on.
This photo is looking up at the ridgeline that I would be crossing.
This is looking back at the ridgeline that I just came down from with clouds rolling in. It was really clear when I was up there.
Me taking a selfie with dark clouds in the back ground. I’m not sure how my hat got so lopsided!
