    Autumn in the Adirondacks: Mt Jo, The Brothers, Big Slide Mtn

    Adirondacks, NY October 2nd - 4th, 2015 This past weekend I took my wife up to the Adirondacks in the hopes of finding some fall foliage. It turns out we were a little early as it was probably about a week before peak. But this was good enough for us since everything is still green in New...

    A weekend traipsing around Virginia

    McAfee Knob / George Washington National Forest / Shenandoah National Park Jul 16th to 19th, 2015 I'd be lying if I said this was one of my favorite trips. That's not a strike against Virginia, most of this trip was botched by poor planning, poor timing with the weather, and some brutal...

    Mount Moosilauke, WMNF

    Mount Moosilauke, White Mountain National Forest, NH May 29th, 2015 For the second time in a month, the weather in Virginia forced me to postpone my backpacking trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains. This time, I wasn't going to let the extra vacation day that I had taken go to waste. I noticed...

    Join along on a trip of many firsts for me. It was my first time hiking with my buddy Sherpa (Dane), first time on the LHHT, first time with split fire wood provided, men & women privy, concrete mile markers and many, many more. I had an absolute blast, met some incredible people and can not...

    A Night on the Appalachian Trail

    A Night on the Appalachian Trail 10/18/2014 I debated whether to post this since most TR’s on here are epic and this one certainly is not. I live about 20 minutes from Harriman State Park in NY and consider it my “backyard” for hiking. Roughly 19 miles of the Appalachian Trail traverses...

    Ultralight Backpacking / Hammock Style - Fall in the Adirondacks

    Come along with me and spend 3 days, 2 nights in the 5 Ponds Wilderness Area of the Adirondacks. The weather was perfect, 70's and sunny with lows in the mid 40's and the leaves were at peak color. The view atop Cat Mountain took my breath away! This is the first trip where I have been...

    Pisgah National Forest

    Well, life has been crazy since I moved from Utah to Alabama this summer, but we've finally moved into a house and we're about to be settled in. So, over the Labor Day weekend I decided it was time to get out for a few days. This has been a rough summer because for nine years in Utah I've had...

    Mt. Washington and Mt. Monroe - White Mountain National Forest, NH

    Finally got back up the White Mountains in my back yard (2 hours away) here in NH, and hiked to the highest point in the northeast, Mt. Washington. It was an awesome hike, and I've been bitten by the hiking bug again, hoping to knock off a few more of our 4,000 footers (I've done 27/48 so far)...

    Shawangunk Ridge, NY

    I hope it’s acceptable to do a trail report in video format. If not, I apologize. Most of you are from out west and probably haven’t hiked in my neck of the woods (NJ/NY). While you’re not missing out on much in comparison to the epic places you guys have out west, I figured I’d throw a video...
