Manmping!
Lady was away so off we (brother-in-law and friend) go. I halfway finagled a friend to pick us up at Little Green Valley if we decided to hike the hard hump out. In the end I decided to keep it shorter.

We made it down to camp Friday evening after seeing a passel of elk, deer, turkeys and a fox.
The next morning we broke camp, packed up and headed downstream. Thanks to Chum, I knew a Camp 2 existed but we played it by ear. Going was slow because of the rain muddied water. I like these rocks better that WCC since they grip instead of slip (well except the fish out of water granite parts).

Anyway we made it to the falls and then dropped packs to see if there was a better, nestley camp further on. We eventually gave up and decided we liked Camp 1 better. We had enough daylight still to hike the 3.something miles back to camp plus it's fun to water hike with a full pack so we headed back planning to go upstream from there tomorrow.

We made it back just as the skies opened up. It passed after 45min and we were already wet so we waited. We set up our rainflys for the night's just-in-cases and then gathered more firewood. I had to do the sideways stove jobby to get the wet wood going but going we got it.

Next morn, I let the boys sleep in and we eventually headed east with lighter packs. Much playing and goofing was accomplished and when sky threatened pretty heavily later by pronouncing itself loudly we retreated back. Rain hit camp as we did yet again. Some waiting, then packing up began and we hiked out in the cloudy shade.

Beeline malts rounded it all out.
