Hiked up to Tom's Thumb and back from the North trail head. The main purpose was to try out my new multiday backpack and start getting in better shape for backpacking. I loaded the pack up with 3 gallons of water and enough random stuff to get the weight up to 35 lbs. It was a beautiful day with some nice cloud formations. I didn't bring a camera - already have too many pics of this area. But as usual, the beauty of the granite rock formations and cloud streaked blue sky was too much to resist so I had to dig my cellphone out of the pack to take some pics.

The new pack (Osprey Xenith 75) worked great - lots of adjustments to get the fit just right and to shift the weight back and forth between hips and shoulders. It's heavier than I wanted but couldn't find one that had a negative weight when empty.
