Three of us ventured up to Twin Brooks on the only sunny day in July. We took the short cut (good thing too, as our packs were heavy with tents and pots of chili and small kitchen appliances).

We arrived just in time for dinner. What a glorious sunset! Unfortunately, the campfire was a bust but it wasn’t due to a lack of effort. Too much rain made all the kindling soggy. Still, spirits were high as we tried to outdue one another telling silly jokes.

We all agreed this is one fabulous place to camp out and maybe we’ll make another trip back, but next time with a good supply of dry kindling.
