Well, I tried. I finally had my window of pretty weather, loaded up and set out on my hike. Unfortunately, halfway to my planned campsite I was unable to get myself and all my camera equipment safely across the creek. I had to turn back.
Sure, I could have camped any number of pretty places on the way back. I even checked a few out but they turned out to be swampland obscured by a bed of pine needles. By now I’m disappointed that my plans have turned to dust, there are clouds on the horizon, and my mojo just wasn’t there anymore.
But I did get in a nice 7.5 mile dayhike, and that’s never a bad thing.
