Write Up:
It was a wet weekend. But we had fire, good food and good friends. Friday we got to camp about 8:30 PM, set up camp, had some snacks and reclined in front of a very large fire ring. Sometime in the middle of the night it poured and only died to down to a faint drizzle by morning. Poor Alyssa experienced a flooded tent but rallied well and we got her tent dried out by dinner. Breakfast was made up under a slightly adequate tarp and we set up additional dining tents to house our camp chairs and hover if it downpoured again. Thankfully the weather cleared to a cool but partially sunny day. The hike went well and we enjoyed a nice dinner and huge fire. Sunday morning brought light rain again and so no planned hikes could take place. Oh well. With the amount of rain we had- congrats to everyone for staying mostly dry!
