We only had 2.5 miles to hike today, so we all slept in later than usual. I remember the hike to the "hippie camp" very easy. We passed a spring area with lots of vegetation that slowed us down a bit. When we got to the hippie camp, we weren't certain we were actually there at first. I was expecting something pretty significant, but there were only a few rock-lined paths and a camping area, at that was about it. Obviously some effort was put into modifying the area for longer term camping, but really not very much.
