Exit days are a mix, sometimes I've got miles to crunch, others are lazzy. This exit day fell into lazy. I woke up rested, warm, refreshed. The lower elevation, trees, and the wind dying out added to solid sleep. I like to try to be up and gone in 15 minutes as a goal. This being lazy, how does 25 minutes sound?
After packing, I boiled up some water for coffee, walked Duck Lake's beach before heading out.
I wandered to Weir Lake, down a side trail to Majorie Lake. At Majorie Lake I fixed a mug of mint tea and played the guitar a while. I really need to memorize some music. I checked out a few spots near by before returning along the flooded trail. Wet feet, suck it up, walk through the water. The modern materials need no pampering like the boots of old.
I was back at the car by noon. I had a lazy time. What did I learn? Keep the phone in a case. I dropped it a few times too many. Also a tent is warmer than sleeping under the stars but, I wouldn't exchange sleeping out under the stars when I can for a little warmth.
Hike on, Hike wise.
