vividly remember my Mt. Marcy summit, treks on Indian Head, Mt.
Baker and other forgoten peaks and a week spent canoeing on the
Saranac lake system.
While I miss some of the scenery and trails (not the black flies), I
just spent a weekend up in Jeffereson Park, an alpine meadow/plateu,
at ~6000ft. on a section of the PCT, on the northern side of Mt.
Jefferson in the Oregon Cascades.
It was the most beautiful hiking weather I can EVER remember during
a hike. I was testing out my DIY hammock system (4.3oz hammock,
5.7oz bug netting and 12oz tarp, plus lines). Also testing my DIY
underquilt and recently completed Kennebec pull-over from Ayce at
I'll post pics as soon as I get them off the cameras and on the
<Shameless BGT plug>
What a great weekend to be testing gear for BGT
