This trip made me so happy. Giddy happy.
We went on a mini-backpacking trip with 7 good friends a couple of weeks ago (JW stayed with Grandma). We hiked to Cooper Canyon Trail Camp in the Angeles National Forest.
We packed in bags of Eco-Vino, pre-made burritos - only the essentials. We took our time on the trail, visited a waterfall and relaxed at the trail camp. It was heaven.
This short trip has got me itching for a longer backpacking trip. Or at least a really good long hike. The kind where you sweat, your muscles start burning, and you're eating beef jerky and trail mix the whole time; the kind where you feel like you've conquered the world afterwards- your whole body tingles in delight. It's been too long.
