|“O Canada! Where pines and maples grow. Great prairies spread and lordly rivers flow.” Hey, at least it’s not the French National Anthem. Because then, it’ll be fighting words. But, Dolly Sods is suppose to be a little piece of Canada in our own backyard. You have to see this place to really appreciate it.|
For those hearty souls willing to backpack out to Dolly Sods, here is the low down:
We’ll meet up Friday night and carpool out there, stopping at some place to grab dinner. We’ll car camp at the Red Creek Campground. It’s primative, meaning there will be water there and pit toilets. Hopefully, there will be still be open sites. If not, we’ll just have to kick some boy scouts out. Afterall, they should have respect for their elders. Isn’t that part of the boy scout code? Give respect to the geezers?
On Saturday morning, we’ll break camp, park our cars and make our trek down some trail. We’ll hike about 4-6 miles (maybe less, maybe more) and find a nice cozy campsite. There are plenty along the way, and I know the perfect site right next to a nice brook (read, when I get tired, we’ll just stop). Once there, we’ll set up camp, then go for a day hike. Your fearless leader will have maps and will NOT get you lost. So, if you question whether we are lost, the first time will be met with a stern glare, the second time, a growl, and on the third time, you will be hung by your toenails on the nearest palm tree until you acknowledge my leadership skills.
On return to the campsite, we’ll make a large glowing fire, dance naked around it, and howl at the moon. Well not really, so get your mind out of the gutter. We’ll just do the normal, boring campsite things, like make dinner and have good conversation. You are not suppose to build a campfire because there are still unexploded ordnance. But, we’ll build one anyway. See no evil, speak no evil. One of us will just have to volunteer to jump really hard up and down on the place where we’ll build the campfire. Sunday morning we will pack it up and hike back to our cars.
