Brian myself and Mike did a quick and easy overnight trip north of Little Blair Valley two weekends ago. Was in between storms. Weather was perfect. Got a brief shower around midnight. Air was calm. Spent some time checking out the other pictograph site a massive rock shelter and the sunrise. Mike has the new Zpacks Offset Duo. Greatly improved interior space over the Duplex. Was a fun trip. 8 miles, 1200ft gain.

Sounds like you guys timed it perfectly. That's a great area. More beautiful skies that go on forever. Thanks for sharing!

We only saw one other hiker. It's nice to know there are still places that offer some solitude without being too difficult to reach.

Thanks. Kuiu Peleton 97 lightweight fleece. I would say it's one of the best backpacking items I own. 6oz.

Another nice trip. Glad you like your new tent. Was watching a youtuber last night review "ultralight tents' and zpacks didn't make the cut (the guy's sponsor was Moosejaw, so...) but it would have been the lightest of all of them. Thought zpacks way more pricy than the competition but that's not really the case anymore. Quite happy with my altaplex. Thanks!

Looked them up, looks like nice gear, have never heard of that company before. The color Valo looks pretty cool also.

It's one of my best pieces of clothing. I don't leave home without it. Highly recommend it.

I know that youtuber. I really like Zpacks tents. I also like Tarptent. I think Henry Shires is genius. My Zpacks Plex Solo is pretty darn neat at 14oz. I just barely fit into it but it works.
