One thought on “State of Emergency – Overnight Hammock Camp in a Winter Storm

  1. My friend (Phil) and I (Joe) were at the Choke Creek site on the same day. Wet heavy snow piled on top of us overnight. We were up by 5:30 AM, packed up our completely wet gear, then hiked out at about sunrise. You’re right about the temperature getting colder, and also the wind increased, as the time inched closer to 10 AM.

    We selected the wrong direction where the trail forked (two yellow blazes). We should have turn left but went straight instead. Our choice added a little over 3 miles to the hike back to the lot. Yikes!
