A Bad Moment on the Trail

Actually, it was a bad moment in my tent, where I had slept poorly and awoke to drizzle that meant more mosquitoes than usual on the long climb out of the campsite, and I wrote this list of 'stupider things than this trip':
"A pink car
A tattoo or body piercing
Waiting in lines at Disney Land or an amusement park of any kind
Ice fishing
Spending time and money on getting a manicure and pedicure
A longer trip on harder trails (I am sure I will rethink this when I see the photos later)
Chaperoning a school dance
A bad case of the flu
A country music festival
A motorcycle road trip
Cosmetic surgery"

And after the trip I have added one more thing to the list of things stupider than this backpacking trip to Isle Royale:
Never going on adventures like this at all

Because it really was hard, but it really was worth it!

Good job on the photo editing. Now that wasn't so hard, was it? Sounds like an excellent adventure. What's next?
