    My wife and I decided to end the long weekend with some exploring on the forest roads and down by the lake. First, we hit a nice overlook for the views and so my wife could look for old ceramics and glass. For some reason there's a ton of it around this spot.

    While she looked around the brush and got about 100 seed ticks, seriously, I got the radio out to scan and test some range and work on some skills. I decided a pot hook was the thing to practice.

    We headed out to a point we've been to before for some relaxing. Hammocking, shore exploring, and lunch.

    Plenty of cedars here. We need to come back when a fire would be called for.

    Nothing but enjoying the day and the beautiful area.

    It's Gaia GPS from my phone, but the real benefit is that you can upload everything to their site and build or edit routes there and send them back to your phone. They also have a cool "save maps along route" feature that downloads whatever map layer(s) that you want so you have them offline.
