If anyone is interested. just posted my photos. Enjoy!

At the end of the pics I have two charts for you stat

1. My miles per day, overall avg. of my MPD, elev gain
total and avg. elev gain

2. Caloric Intake. The trip was short enough where I
recorded all the food I ate and the calories total (as
best I could). Should be good for a few grins for us
LD hiker types. Enjoy!


Will be posting my journal soon if ya really get bored! :D

Thanks for the compliments on the photos!

I used an Olympus Stylus D300. On one battery, took 300 shots! Wow! I don't use the view screen for taking pictures, so that helped a lot!

As for my gear, you can check out the list at:

The only modifcation is that I went with a fanny pack rather than the SilNylon stuff sack with clips. That did not work too well on a test run. Sigh. Maybe I'll find a silnylon fanny pack someday. My sewing skills are terrible. :o So my total base packweight was about 9# 7oz with the guidebook, maps and nylon fanny pack.

As for temps, was generally low 30s at nigght, low 60s during the day. Perfect weather for hiking! Of course, the snow storm as a bit different. :)
Two or three nights the temps were in the low 20s. That was how it felt anyway!
