NCIWC Backpacking June 27- July 5, 2015

 O’boy! The trip was great! We had nine days of mild weather and lots of wild flowers to dress up the wilderness. Six intrepid adventurers with two Irish Wolfhounds: Phila Finucane and Oisin Christian.

We spent three nights at a lake we visited for the first time, nestled in its own granite bowl with several white sandy beaches. We decided that it was our favorite destination for this trip.
