A nice person named Don set up this Tepee in the park and invited others to use it when he wasn't present.
Vicky's set up Grand Trunk ultralight hammock, 0 degree Hammock Gear UQ and 20 degree T.Q. Vicky is under the Wilderness Logic Winter Tarp
More Hammock Forum members arrive and we build a fire. Special thanks to Walking Bear for bringing all the firewood
Sunset on the first night
A view of the sunset from the entrance to the park. This is Kansas
Vicky ( who now earned the right to have a trail name- Otter) waking up. it got down to 22 degrees the first night
Walking Bear wins the award for best eating. Bringing all real food and a nifty one egg skillet, he made venison sausage mcmuffins for breakfast and brats for dinner.
The day started out sunny but the wind picked up, especially around the lake, and it turned cold!
Lot of different area on the walk, woods, open grasslands and the lake
Passing the 4 mile mark and finishing back at the campsite
Evening fire had some surprises- Walking Bear threw some Osage Orange wood on the fire and the sparks had everyone wearing down clothing scattering like cockroaches to avoid burn holes- Walking Bear found it very amusing wearing his carharts!
Evening sunset the second night
great sitting around the fire in the evening
Waking up the second day to 28 degrees and both tarps are closed off to the wind. the coyotes and the owls were awesome in the night
