Friday slid into Saturday that jumped into Sunday which I slept through waking up far too early into Monday.  Have you ever had days like those, where one melted into the other?  It was a great weekend, but here it is nearly halfway through Monday and I am still fighting off the sleep monsters.

On Sunday, after our small snack at the car, we closed the hatch and headed on our way to the next destination on the agenda.  The backpacking portion of our trip had concluded and now we were starting to engage in the car camp portion.  Car Camping is definitely not as “rough” as backpacking, but… Continue reading Backpacking Adventures: Abbey Way Trail #151
