What are some good games or activities to do on a hike? 
A few friends and I regularly play board games and RPGs together. We are planning a casual hiking and camping trip. We will go by car to the trailhead and hike in with our gear, tent camp overnight, stay one day, and hike out the third day. Part of our plan is to avoid technology during our hike and enjoy nature (cell phones off unless there is an emergency). 

During our day of downtime, we'd like to play some games together. A deck of cards is obviously light, easy and fun, but we usually prefer more complex games. We could bring dice for D&D, but we would probably also need the source books and those are a bit heavy (pdfs violate our technology suspension). Most of our other board games are bulky or have small pieces that would be easy to lose in the woods. 

What are some good games our group can play and enjoy?
