A couple of weeks ago, it was Tilly’s first time backpacking. This weekend was my friend Kim’s.
Kim does lots of walking but has never wild camped before, and has been wanting to have a go and see what we all enthuse about.
We couldn’t have chosen a more idyllic weekend for a first trip!
Superb views, superb weather, a bubbling stream nearby,
and pleasantly cool as it neared sunset.
A heavy mist rolled in overnight, but by breakfast time the next morning the sun was making a nice job of burning it off.
A rather warm 10 mile walk home.
Passing some local landmarks on the way.
I think she enjoyed it.
Maybe she’ll do it again.
