Gone Backpacking

Hey everybody! Right now I’m a day’s hike deep into Colorado’s Weminuche Wilderness! The May 2011 issue of Backpacker lists this hike as one of the most remote wilderness trails in the lower-48 states. Granted we’re only doing a 3-day out and back, but it’s nice to know we’ll be exploring a gateway to a really wild place. Here are a few of my favorite photos from backpacking trips I’ve taken with great friends over the past few years. Stay tuned for photos from this trip! Hope you’re all seeing more of the world this weekend!
