We arrived late morning on Friday and headed down the mountain. I'd be humping about thirty pounds on my back in addition to my airgun which is probably about 11 pounds. Going down shouldn't be a problem but coming back was going to be a chore.
The wild flowers are in bloom now and Chul pointed out each variety to me. It's nice to have this knowledge in the field with you as it makes the outdoor experience more holistic. Though it's a shame I can barely remember any of the names of them. I do remember the important stuff like plants that counteract poison oak. We headed pack and looked for a camping spot. Once we found our basecamp we went about looking for more meadows to hunt tomorrow morning.
