The Fast Way Down the Mountain

Here’s the first of many fun nuggets of joy from last weekends backpacking trip. We covered about 17 miles in three days. On Saturday I wandered off alone all day to see where it would take me. One of the places I wound up was in a huge field of flowers, ferns, blueberries, and huckleberries. The oddity being that it was on a 45 degree slope. When in this situation on the decent there are two ways to get hike down it. You can look for difficult footing and make your way carefully, OOooorrrr you can slide on your butt like a madman!

It was a pretty easy choice.
