We have a secret place we overnight backpack into every year in the summer. It is an opportunity for us to disconnect from the busy wired world and get into nature fully. We are at the mercy of God in this setting, because we have no cell coverage and there is often nobody around for days. Just us, our awesome boys, or pups and lots of fresh trout! We fish, relax and make great memories. The hike up is an unmarked and we always find ourselves off the trail because of fallen trees, mud or rocks that completely block the path. There is excitement when we reach the lake and when we return to our truck, ready to sleep in our own warm beds and take a proper shower. This is a family weekend that has became a tradition for the past three years and I anticipate for many more to come.
