I put together a short video of a recent camping/backpacking trip we did down at Devil's Den State Park in Arkansas. Enjoy!
Julie and I recently went on a short vacation up north to Wisconsin. We spent a night near Madison, two near Bayfield, and our last night was in Milwaukee. The trip really left me with a desire to try a multi-night island hopping trip back up to the Apostle Island National Park in order to get a closer view of some of these beautiful islands.
I am going to put of some pictures from my trip to Colorado that we took at the end of June into early July. Hopefully this will get me to write up some more details on what and where we actually did.
A teaser gallery will appear after the jump.
The Tellico River is my absolute favorite river that I have ever paddled. It is steep, narrow, fun, challenging, not fear inducing, and sits in the one of the most beautiful gorges I have ever been to in Tenessee. This particular trip took place a few years ago so I may not be as exact with the details, but the pictures speak for themselves.
Last summer Glen and I made our way to the top of Mount Quandary, our first 14er, while on a vacation to Summit County, CO. The trail to Quandary Peak is fairly short at 6.5 miles, but it makes up for it by heading straight up the side of the mountain. We met up with Glen's friend Ed and his dog Merrick (a real trooper). Ed had done the trail before and knew the area a lot better than the two of us. I definitely struggled a bit with the lack of O2, having lived most of my life at around 500 feet above sea level, but it was definitely worth it and is an accomplishment I am very proud of!
