Default Backpacking and fishing

Last week the girls and I got out for a 3 day backpacking trip. We camped up the Roaring River in Rocky Mountain National Park. The map said that our camp was 2.4 miles from the trail head. My GPS says that's a lie. It was 3 miles. On Sunday, Payton and I hiked in and set up camp. Then we hiked back out to meet Hunter. After dinner we went to bed. On Monday we hiked into Lawn Lake for lunch and some fishing. We had one pesky Golden Mangled Ground Squirrel (Callospermophilus lateralis) for Paul, that kept hanging around. While we were fishing Hunter and I heard Payton yell "NO!" and go running off. In front of her ran the little pest with our roll of TP in his mouth. Then he kept going under the back pack. When I moved it, I found a pile of crasins from Hunter's trail mix. The pocket was open a few inches and he had chewed a hole in the bag. He only took the nuts and the M&Ms. Finally the wind kicked up and we headed back to camp. On our way back down Payton commented on how she had never seen a bear up there. An hour later in camp while I'm getting the stove started, a black bear walks 30 yards away. We didn't get any pictures as we were busy making noise so he would go away. Tuesday morning we ate breakfast and fished a little before heading out. It only took us a little over an hour to get out.

Ask not what your government can do for you. Ask how your government can go away and get out of your life.

The unarmed man is is not only defenseless, he is also contemptible.
