Ascent Trip Report

Took son on his first backpacking trip and started at the Lake Clearwater State rec area and touched the lake edge and then headed along the FL trail for 2 days and one night and finished at Alexander Springs state recreational area. Swam and then was picked up by Karen by car the next day. Daniel did real fine for his first backpacking. There is not real peak along the FL trail but lots of hilly terrain. We used the Alexander Springs rec area HP as our "summit" destination as a goal.Theoretically there is a couple of places where the closed contour is at least elevation 55 and we touched them all.
