Owners were like, "OH, SORRY!" I like dogs but this was pretty nerve-wracking!!!!

Bugs: none at all, even at dusk and dawn - probably too cold and windy - ? YAY!!!!!

Comments
Comments: Terrific overnight in the Pemi Wilderness! This was my third time looking for the old Johnson Logging camp - third time was the charm!!! YAY!!!!

Amazing evening camping near the west side of Lincoln Brook. In the morning after breaking camp it took me a while but i finally found the remains of the logging camp.... no, I won't say where it is, but, it is definitely somewhere between Lincoln Brook and Mt Liberty :)

Trails in fine shape! Made it out just before the rain really started - YAY!!! Terrific hike!!!!
