TBD

My plan is to make this easy for B-3 students or anyone else who would like an easier backpack. We will go up about halfway to a fairly large campground area to set up our camp assuming there are enough available sites. We will continue the rest of the way to trail junction with a lighter load or day packs and return back to camp for the night. The last day is an easy hike out.
