MY FIRST SOLO BACKPACKING WITH BALOO

My first solo backpacking with Baloo

This was my first “solo” backpacking adventure. I decided to go on a long 4 day hike in the North Cascades and I picked a tough scenic one - North Fork Sauk Trail

Some of the things that made this very challenging were :

  • My first solo trip
  • It was about 30 miles, in high country and it was a hot summer week.
  • I had no idea that Baloo gets so hot and needs a lot of water himself.
