Trekkin’ Humboldt

This is also waaaaaaay past due.

There is a theme here folks.

These are some deep cuts from early this year.

A backpacking trip

into the wilderness

of Humboldt County.

My group was dope,

our food was amazing

and we went a distance of something

around 19 mile in two days

with full packs.

I had a great time.

We walked through swampy marshes

where the water was up to my waist. 

Saw some elk, went through a redwood rainforest that made wish I had some color slide film.  Seriously, every damn thing in that forest was green.  Loved every minute of it.

After the trip the four of us went to get some food at Round Table.  We had been sitting in the car for about a half hour when we pulled up to get some grub. 

All of our muscles were so sore from being abused on the trail that it took us 5 minutes to get into the restaurant from the car.  A majority of that time for me was spent just getiing out of that car, my frickin legs felt like they were locked place.

There we are limping like old people going to Country Kitchen for the early bird specials, and we just all kind of looked at each other and laughed.  Because at that point, we were tired, hungry, and sleep deprived, so we just laughed.

So it was great, I’m glad I went.

Although waking up and being wet from the morning dew blew.

but I digress.

here are some personal favs,

enjoy.
