Beginner's Backpacking Near Abyss Lake (Elementary Schools)

We returned from our trip, Beginner's Backpacking Near Abyss Lake (Elementary Schools), on Sunday, September 21 2014.

We had rain but we had even more fun. The leaves were amazing and the crew even better. Thanks to Andrea and Brad for joining us and to Hana for helping us prepare the food.

Boulder Valley ICO will lead an overnight, beginner's backpacking trip from the Abyss Lake Trailhead to a creekside campsite about 2 miles into the wilderness, where we will enjoy the fall foliage, a campfire, and lovely scenery.
