Just got back from a 2-day/1-night backpack to Idlehour campground; a most gracious, wondrous and mystical location untouched (mostly) by man. With beautiful scenery, you're greeted by butterflies, touched by lingering branches, cooled by the creek's rushing water flow and enter the nearby campground (from Inspiration Pt). A most wondrous time; this place is definitely camera ready.
