backpack: Trapper Creek Wilderness

My first backpacking trip of the year was focused on spending time relaxing in the forest and practicing photography skills. We spent two nights and explored the side trails on Trapper Creek.

I’ve been taking a landscape photography class and wanted to practice using my tiny tripod. There are quite a few creek crossings, so we had plenty of chances to work on capturing moving water and lovely little forest scenes.

Our trip ended with a bang, literally. We woke up at 6am with the crashing sound of loud thunder so we packed up and hit the trail in record time. It barely rained on us, but thunder and lightning continued for two of the three miles back to the trailhead.
