I have spent many an afternoon trekking through forests and deserts and have slept under the stars my fair share of times. I may not be the specter of John Muir reborn like my colleague, but on an outdoorsy scale, I’d rate myself a solid 6.5.
I’m about to bump it up a notch.
Yes, my dear readers, tomorrow I set off for my very first backpacking trip. I’m super excited, not only because I’ll finally see if I have the backpacking gene in me, but also because I’m going to see some of the gorgeous lakes near Mammoth Lakes. My first Google search for the area informed me that a monkey with a camera could take gorgeous shots. Well, call me a chimpanzee and it’s a challenge.
See you when I get back.
