|Chuck Kainz' first backpacking trip.|
Packing was a bit of a challenge for him.
|Night one in Atlanta, ID.|
|Mike Arnold, Matt Thomas, myself,|
Kyle Pearson, Chuck Kainz. Doug Kern
took the photo.
|One of a thousand stream crossings.|
|June is always wet.|
|Soaking my sore foot in the icy cold water.|
|Helping Chuck lighten his load by eating|
his canned food items.
|I wish I would have thought about the|
flag idea. Brillant.
|First trip with my DIY tarp. I am very proud.|
|Matt borrowed my Double Rainbow.|
|Wood burning stoves were the rage on this trip.|
|My DIY wood burning stove made out of paint cans.|
|Yes another stream crossing.|
|May not look like it, but the water was fast.|
|Doug helping a brother across.|
|I'm really good at this backpacking thing.|
|Tried to fish this with no luck.|
|My official hiking pose.|
|Ansel Adams anybody? Anybody?|
|Yep you guessed it, more stream crossings.|
|We walked in the creek, it was easier than post|
hole digging in the snow. And ya know, it wasn't any colder.
|You can do anything with duct tape.|
|The lake we were hoping to fish.|
|Only patch of drive ground for hundreds of yards.|
|Three under this tarp, at this pitch was cozy.|
|Trying to stay warm and drying our shoes out.|
|Pre Militia Box, but yes always Crossfit.|
|I'm not saying we are lost, we just like to look around.|
|Another lake we were going to fish.|
|Lunch: pita pockets, cream cheese, and salami.|
|No fish were injured during the taking of this photo.|
|Looks just like Last of the Mohicans.|
|Cool find, no signage to let us know it was there.|
