This was another trip to a frozen lake in Wild Basin. At this point, I think I've been to more Wild Basin lakes in winter than in the summer. In the summers I'm usually up higher and skip the trails, and thus miss most of the lakes.
The tracks from the day users ran out pretty fast. I didn't have a nice moose that was making tracks for me like at Husted Lake back in January.
I was excited to start exploring before the skies turned overcast, and had I skipped my hot breakfast. When I got back to camp, I cooked my oatmeal before packing up. I always drink the gray water from cleaning my pot after I finish eating. The thought of doing this at home is repulsive but when backpacking I doesn't bother me. It's almost become my favorite part of the "camping" aspect of backpacking. It just feels so primal...
