I took my new backpack out for a proper overnight camping trip this weekend.
The weather was very nice on Saturday. It was warm and sunny, and all the streams got full and gurgly from melting snow.
I had about 25 pounds in the Catalyst, and it was very comfortable. I packed a few pounds more than I needed to, but I still made an effort to stick to the ‘lightweight’ style.
I slept under a tarp, but I had a 4 pound sleeping bag, which was probably a good thing, because It got kind of cold out.
When I woke up, everything was covered in new snow, which was all very pretty. Unfortunately, some snow blew in under the tarp, and my sleeping bag got a little wet.
Calamity! My camera suffered a major technical problem, and I lost about half of the pictures from this adventure. I imagine that nobody even reads my words, since they just look at the pictures.
Since I don’t have any more pictures, I guess I don’t need any more words.
