This particular hitch started with spending the first day camping in the front country about a mile or so from the trail head. We set up camp for the night and hung out and chatted with our packer and project partner

The next morning started with breakfast, packing up camp, and packing up the panyards for the mulls. Then the 6 or 7 mile hike into a back country campsite on the Mountain Ash Creek Trail began. This trail was relatively flat and and easy hike. This involved 3 creek crossings. Once we arrived at our campsite we set up our camp for the week.

The next 5 days consisting of our crew doing a variety of things. These tasks ranged from building check steps to maintaining/cleaning drains along the trail to hiking up to union falls for fun to talking with our project partner. Also during this time our crew couldn’t stay dry for more than a couple of hours.

This hitch ended with our crew taking down camp, packing up the mulls, hiking back out to the trail head, unpacking the mulls, and driving back to Bozeman.
