Today was day two of Intro to Backpacking.  Today we hiked our longest hike yet, 6.5 miles!  We took the Fowler trail all the way to the Dowdy Draw trailhead.  On our way we saw a big rattlesnake and loads of ladybugs.  We ate lunch on the trail, during which we came up with our group name: the Pink Pickled Raisons.

When we got back from the trail, the whole group got a lesson in camp cooking and backpack packing.  Now I can finally say that we are ready for our trip tomorrow!  Fern Lake here we come!!!
