Friday we headed north and spent three days backpacking near the Canadian border. While I did take a sock project that has been on hold for the past year (the bag in the foreground),I only managed to knit a few rows before stopping to ponder how I’m going to work the traditional heels backwards.
Here’s proof that I made it to the border after bushwhacking off trail through the forest (hence the mosquito net and jacket). There are no signs, just an odd looking clear-cut path through the forest. Funny thing is … although we didn’t run into border patrol at the border, one guy was hanging out in his Jeep at trail head when we left Sunday. He asked about the bugs and mentioned they’d be going up there on horses soon.
And look what we found! 5.2 pounds … a personal record.
