Last weekend, I helped take a Troop of Boy Scouts up to Big Pine Creek, and we stayed in Palisade Group Campsite. While the boys and the rest of the adults went to fish for dinner, Jorge and I hiked up towards Palisade Glacier. That’s an 8 mile one way outing. We didn’t get quite that far, just 6.25 miles in, but it was still a good hike. A little bit of drizzle and rain, and afternoon clearing. Despite the photo above, the sun did not come out till we got almost back to the campsite.
I’ll need to go back and do that trip again, as part of a 3 or 4 day backpack trip.
