Testing the homemade backpack.

My new backpack was finally done .

I did a quick 26 mile overnight on the Standing Indian Loop (my 6th lifetime loop, and my second this year) for its first trip.

Sewed from an $83 kit sold by Ray and Jenny Jardine.  9.9oz, 2400 cubic inches, size large shoulder straps.

Beautiful drive into the Standing Indian Campground, the start/finish of the hike.

Fall on the Kimsey Creek Trail up to Standing Indian Mountain.

A windy, cold, and stunning sunset on Standing Indian Mountain, 5,499 feet.

You can see the wind gust pushing my tarp to the left as I set up camp. Beech Gap, 4,460 feet. More tarp photos here.
