    Favorite cold camping activity: I get enjoyment from letting a water bottle get supercooled, then knocking and watching it crystalize from the inside.

    I echo Morgan. About 15 years ago I kayak camped for two nights through it and tried to hike a little. It was spring and wet. It was too cool to swim, couldn't light a fire, and was pretty swampy....

    Trail head is Turkey Pen. I guess you mean to finish Art Loeb at Davidson River Campground and meander over to the Turkey Pen Trail head using any of a few of the Pink Beds area trails? That is a...

    I'm not sure of the statutes, and the ethics are sticky, but hunting dogs are legally not strays and if you engage them there can be legal ramifications. The law is on the dog owner's side.

    Bear boxes, too many times, means "trash can" for those too lazy to pack trash, broken stuff, wet clothes, etc., etc. I'm not maintaining a section of trail now, but ask those who do.

    I hike that section or parts thereof about once a year. That is an ambitious schedule, I think because there are so many ups and downs. Your second day is particularly demanding, and even at peak...

    If you pay to enter and park over by the beach/picnic area side there is a bath house with showers to use. I often finish hikes here and go for a swim and shower before hitting the road.

    Depends what your base weight is, I suppose. If you spent 100 to get a 35 lb rig down to 34, I'd think that is too much. But supposing your base is 20 lbs, then that would be a different question in...
