Taum Sauk 10/1 - 10/2/2011

I'll keep this report brief since I have detailed two other hikes this year on this section.

What an absolutely gorgeous weekend. I don't think I've seen the sky any bluer. Started out at the Hwy N trailhead about 9:00AM Saturday. The temp was around 43, absolutely perfect. Arrived at the Taum Sauk campground around 6:00PM.

There were several camped in the campground. We enjoyed a wonderful night camping without the flies on the tent so we could enjoy the stars.It never ceases to amaze me how quiet it is on the top of that mountain.

Got up Sunday morning and was on the trail by 8:00 getting back to Hwy N around 3:30PM. I counted 15 other backpackers on the trail, the most I've seen in a single weeked. Everyone had a smile on their face!
