Our plan with this maiden camping voyage was to make it easy. We didn’t make a fire. We didn’t even make any food (everything was a prepackaged from Trader Joes). The only thing we heated was water on the jetboil for coffee, which was cowboy style (some coffee grounds included).
After packing up in the morning we headed to Wilson Trail, just a few miles up the road. Wilson Trail is a ten mile lightly used out and back which closely parallels the Pacific Crest Trail. The morning was heating up quickly so we only hiked a small portion of the trail. It was a brief explore but we saw a beautiful bouquet of wild desert flowers with our wildflower, so it was a nice introduction to what may await further down the trail.
