A quick between hikes, hike just to get out of the house. I went hiking with my hiker friend who does not like hiking in the rain or the snow and it rained. I was still a bit sore from Tuesday's hike and my knee hurt from all that jumping, so I was happy to take it a bit easy today.
My next hike will be a big one, where to, I'm not sure. Maybe Upper Lena Lake.
So far my new pack is great. It fits me so well that I might not even need the hip belt. I kept my keys in the hip belt pocket, they were awkward in the top pocket. But the top pocket was perfect for my lunch, no danger of smashing my sandwich up there.
I discovered that the pack has clips on the shoulder belt, I'm not sure what the clips are for. I don't seem to need the sternum strap but I will leave it on for one more hike just to be sure.
6 miles 300 feet elevation gain.
