This past Saturday Katie, the Dogs, and I headed South with plans of an overnight somewhere on the OT. Once we arrived at the 32/DD lot we learned of a 275 acre controlled burn on some of the Middlefork and most of Council Bluff Lake loop. It was this that made us decide to hike to CBL, and also the idea of not having to worry about water, camp, fire, and of course toilets! This is the perfect overnight if you want a good 4-5mi hike, but are short on time. It was really amazing seeing the burn in action, and easily the largest burn I have ever witnessed. It turned out to be one of the best trips we have had, and we will be doing this one again soon!
That is all.
