Solo Hammock Camp Overnighter at the Red River Gorge

This past black Friday, I decided to get out of town and let the consumerism zombies have at each other. My destination was the Red River Gorge in Kentucky. It is one of my favorite places to camp, backpack, and hike. I set out to find Hanson’s Point which is an overlook off an unofficial trail.
