Jefferson Park, August 2015
For the gear list, click here. The link will take you to my snazzy LighterPack list. ALSO: Includes food + water! (We did some fancy backcountry cooking)
You may notice: I went a bit heavier on this trip.
Why? Because I was going with friends on what I best describe as a chill “base camp” + good food + booze backpacking trip. We brought beer, wine, curry, and a hammock in addition to our tent. Since the hike in was only 6 miles and up 2,000 feet (which was actually pretty gradual), it was worth the extra weight! Sometimes, it’s worth not going ultra-light for those special occasion trips.
