    First Solo Backpacking Trip

    With all of the nice weather we've had in central MT I decided to try a different access point into one of my back country spots. Its not real high in elevation (4500-6k) so most of the snow was melted off. I was back in around 3 miles or so. It was my first overnight trip solo and the mental aspect of it played a bigger part of it than I thought. It should get easier from here on out though. Didnt get hardly any sleep with the winds almost flipping my tent over a few times but watching the sun rise was worth it. Saw quite a few deer and some elk and ended up being a pretty successful trip. Here are some pics.
