DC UL is a very badass group of backpackers--now would you like cheesecake?
All in all, this was a good trip, and it was nice to explore a new side of Shenandoah National Park. Too often, I default to the popular spots but I’ve been making an effort over the past year to explore more trails that I haven’t been on before.
It turns out that the Yetimen are real, and they were having their annual campout! There was a short walk to Birch Run shelter and it was PACKED! It felt like we were out on 4th of July.
As night fell, the group stayed warm and comfy surrounding the fire while sharing good conversation, spirits, and desserts.
