    and took some unique pics.

    Looks like a great trip, and the wings out there are a very nice touch I never would have thought of. Also I went too fast through the photos and wondered why you put bowdrill in as plant I.D. (durrrr).

    great post man, You sure do get out don't ya!

    The joys of bowdrill, just when you feel you've got it mastered, mother nature kicks your ass.

    Those wings looked outstanding. Can't go wrong with wings and some beers. I like your improvised grill. Great trip report.

    Great trip, man. Cast iron is so heavy, yet so worth it.
