ESAR training hike - overnight in the Goat Rocks Wilderness

Eight ESAR members, two guests (possibly going through training), and two dogs, backpacked to Goat Lake in Lewis County.  We carried our gear, worked out a few kinks in personal equipment, played with a tarp shelter and hand a blast.  As always, "If it aint raining, it aint training", we had good weather on the way out to Goat Lake, that night it rained and buffeted us with gale force winds.  Everyone was up and ready to go in the rain as we headed back out via the Snowgrass trail, adding a couple extra miles to our journey.
