July 6-7, 2019
Back to Backpacking
Back to Tarol's Homepage
Kidlet and I were brave and backpacked overnight by ourselves in the
Thousand Lakes Wilderness! It takes a while to get to the Tamarack
Trailhead off a very bumpy steep road.
We saw very few people and
lots of wildlife! A deer kept us company in our campsite all night long.
We named him Lucky Charm
:) Saw a mama black bear and two cubs
driving out.
I've never heard or seen so many small birds in my whole
life as in this wilderness. Thankfully encountered v
ery few mosquitos
instead were greated with tons of wildflowers. Camped about 3
miles in at Eiler Lake. Very peaceful and pretty place!
