The guitarist from Whirl’d, Boomers, gave us a ride back to the trail head around 4pm, a much later start than Diggs and I originally planned for, but oh well. We decided a night hike was in order, and we hiked until about 10:30 that night. The days are becoming much warmer, and we were getting closer to when night hiking was going to be the norm.
We found a spot on an old dirt road to camp, and started setting up our tents when we noticed our creepy little friends who had already set up camp before us. I had never seen so many spiders in my entire life, they were everywhere! They were quarter sized little brown guys, who must have smelled us coming, and boy were they ever eager for the meet and greet. I zipped the tent up a little tighter just before I fell fast asleep.
