Rip & Go

Rip and Go.....

Backpacker Magazine introduced me to this term.

It refers to these shorter backpacking trails that are spread out across the country.

Like many people we hit the trail on the weekends.

Two Lakes Loop is located in Southern Indiana.

It is a 15.7 mile trail that encompasses two lakes and is bisected by a connector trail.

It easily becomes a 20+ miler by hiking in a figure eight pattern.

We arrived after 10:00 PM on Friday night.

Adorned with headlamps we made it to camp and were in our bags by midnight.

Our canine companion isn't a "flatlander".

He carries his own gear, food, and water.....

I left my Leica at home. 

I carried an Olympus OM-D EM-5 with the Panny 20mm f1.7 v.1.

We were home Sunday early enough to attend a dinner party that evening.
