This trip teaches me about Hilleberg tents and how they handle wind as I get caught in a nasty windstorm on Bob Bald which jerks out tent stakes and bends a Hilleberg tent pole. But first, things start out calmly on the South Fork Citico trail as I make the major creek crossing and stop at Eagle Camp for a break.
