Two great weekend trips

I got two trips in over these last two weekends. The weekend of August 25th Shena, Jason's daughter Zoe, and I did a nice structured trip to Palmer Creek. Palmer creek is almost becoming an annual destination. We car camped in the valley with a campfire the first night. Then hiked up the hill and alpine camped the second night. We caught bait fish in the hanging valley lake again this year. Then we hiked to the car Sunday and rode bikes out the 15 mile dirt road while Shena drove the pace car.

Then, on labor day weekend I did an insane trip with Ray & Shena. Ray wanted to explore an old mine site in the Wrangells he had geo-located earlier. Having Tuesday off, we made it a 4 day and 3 night trip. We drove all night and micro napped at the beginning of the Nugget Creek Trail. We biked to clear creek, hiked down clear creek, crossed the Kuskalana river, and then bushwacked up the mountain to the mine sites.
