backpacking, Somewhere in between

Manistee National Forest, Michigan

Clyde and I finally embarked on our first backpacking trip! Since lightweight supplies are pretty pricy, we didn’t invest in these items on our fast-paced car-camping trip last year. This rainy weekend hike made us realize we have some more investing to do… like better quality sleeping pads and water-wicking, quick-drying hiking clothes. Also… in the supposedly bear scarce lower peninsula of Michigan, Clyde spotted the first bear we’ve ever encountered inside a campground. The good news, I think my bear fear has worn off because I slept like a baby in the tent that night!

Best part of this trip… visiting Lindsay, Katie, and Apollo at their Garden Fort farm!
