Start Day

Got out of Superior Shuttle after a ride from Fox Farm Road wondering what the hell I am doing at age 50. The ride was long and the hills out the shuttle window seemed higher. Oh well. The weather was perfect and I had a goal of settling in and getting the trip started. The trail was as clear as the day and I made ok progress until I came to hills. I wasn't sure what to expect from my training, but the hills were fine on the first day.

I filled up at the first creek and the water flow was very low.

In my excitement I had forgotten to eat, but now I ate a couple snack bars.

Stopped at Jackson Creek for more water and it, too was pretty low. The campsite was occupied and it didn't look that great being right on the trail.

Ended the day at Woodland Cribou Pond campsite. It was a little uneven but since the weather was clear I picked the best looking spot. Certainly not a memorable campsite, but it was good enough. Water was from an unseen pond. Lot of bird sounds from the pond all night.

Other Trail is located off the beaten path, somewhere between the soles of your feet and your imagination.
