Campfire at Camp Pleasant

Campfire at Camp Pleasant

I backpacked into Camp Pleasant for a night around the campfire. I love hiking by myself … but when I do, I tend to keep to trails I know well and don’t wander around off my designated route. The equipment you see is what I carried: about 23 lbs (including water … not including the Nikon D-850 around my neck). As I age (now at 72), the weight of the pack has become more important to my being able to continue to enjoy backpacking. Thankfully, technology has substantially reduced equipment weights.
