The boys headed to Kings Peak for three days. Back packed in, hiked up, and packed out. They were really crunched for time so the hike from base camp to the peak that usually takes most of the day they did in 5 1/2 hours. Finished in record time! Not going to lie, I was pretty jealous I wasn't invited, I have never been back packing and really want to go. Now that the waters have been tested on this hike I think it is a must for me next summer! 40 lb pack...no problem!
