On Day 2 of this survival adventure I crawled out of my primitive survival shelter and collected simple foods to eat near camp. After breakfast I ventured out to explore up the canyon towards the mountain peak to see what I might find. I found a few more food items that required no preparation and climbed one of the rocky peaks. I made a digging stick, started a few fires using cattail fluff, made a shadow stick compass to show directions, and heated rocks in the fire to keep me warm at night. The following morning I enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and prepared to hike out of the mountains.
