This was my sanctuary day in the woods, as today marks the first anniversary of Melinda's passing. I find more peace and comfort in the woods than many other places, so this is where I wanted to spend the day. My campsite was adjacent to a creek, with no one on either side of me, so the night was peaceful - maybe a little chilly, but nice.
After breakfast, I headed up to the Ramona Falls Trail - roughly a seven mile hike, round trip. It was a nice day and a nice hike, and offered the peace that I wanted. AFter this hike, I was curious about another trailhead area, so drove a little further up the Lolo Pass Road to where the Pacific Crest Trail crosses it. I headed east on the PCT a ways, but since this section was all up hill, and since I had already hiked 7 miles, I turned around after less than a mile. However, it is noted for future reference.
Back to the campground to break camp.
