Backcountry Hikes

Here are some of the hikes that I have done since I got interested in backpacking. I plan to add more to this site to make it useful to people who are looking for a nice trip into the wilderness, as I have found sites such as Kevin's Hiking Page to be extremely useful when I'm trying to find the next place to explore. I've also given introductory talks on backpacking, which can be found here.

It's by no means gospel, but I've put together my own gear checklist. I cannot claim to be an expert in this arena, so don't take this as an ironclad set of items that you must bring.

And if you're in need of some inspiration, here are some quotes that always get to me.
