Picture dump 10/26 – 10/28/07

Friday, I went from home straight to the backpacking class I was teaching, and arrived back home around 2pm today.

Unpacked

Thursday, our friend John Johnson rolled into town. He’s been on a large sailing boat off the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and California since July. This all the stuff he had packed onto his motorcycle.

Ground cover

Friday, in the parking lot for our trailhead.

Walking in the woods

Saturday was overcast, but not rainy. We spent the day doing backcountry navigation and route-finding, which is pretty hard in southern Indiana.

In the pines, in the pines…

The pine forest we slept in on Saturday night, and hiked out of on Sunday.

The whiner

Jacques starts meowing at the cabinet his food is stored in around 8pm. Dinner time is 9:30pm. He’s very persistent.

10/25/07: Home

Full court French press

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines!

I usually don’t drink coffee, but this is going to be one of those days. For some reason, as the outside temperature drops, it gets harder and harder to pull myself out of bed. Too bad getting paid for work trumps being warm and cozy.
