Wally and Kay at the Purgatory trailhead with our three llamas loaded for a week in Chicago Basin. Three llamas for 4 backpackers was an unaccustomed luxury, and we took full advantage (yes, those are lawn chairs). Wally and Kay with llamas at Purgatory trailhead
Jay met us near the Needleton whistlestop, and we camped the first night at this spot near the start of the Needle Creek trail. Campsite near start of Needle Creek trail
