The TREK- Day 2

on

Following our late drop-off at the trail head, we voted to sleep in, enjoy coffee and a leisurely breakfast, and take our time breaking camp. Enroute by 11AM, beautiful pink Broad-leaf willow-herbs dotted our pathways —the northern section has no real trail, just a suggested meander on the map—and seven antlers indicated the presence of caribou.
Day 2 was another slog across the bog—note the water pooling near the rocks beside the tent but a slight breeze blew away any mosquitoes and the weather was warm—maybe 13C and trekking with 50lb+ packs kept us warm.
