Gam Saan and Monroe Ridge hike summary

Posted on Nov 17 2022 - 7:53am

The Gam Saan Monroe Ridge hike on October 29th, 2022 was a success. When we started at 8:30 am it was a little brisk but it felt good hiking. It was a nice five mile hike through the James Marshall State Historic Park. We went to the Marshall monument and it was fun to learn the history behind it.  When we moved on we walked through the historic mining town and we got to see what a mine shaft looked like. When we got to the museum, we got to hold a gold coin thanks to Mr. Ed Allen, a great park docent.When we finished the hike at 11:30  it was nice to get to the bottom of the hill.

Bull Run Backpacking Summary

Posted on Nov 9 2022 - 9:22pm
I would say all participants had an amazing time. It was a very exhilarating journey for all of us facing the withering elements. I cannot lie about the fact that the fashion police didn't come to arrest us for looking like how we did.We met one singular group on the second day and met 2 groups on the third day.Everyone we met was incredibly friendly and improved our moods.I would recommend this backpacking trek for those inclined of searching for trails until your eyes go cross and if you're running from the fashion police.It was really cool seeing frozen ponds and streams.We hiked around 18 miles with over 3,000 feet of elevation gain.
