Adirondack Backpacking

Backpacking High Peaks Trail Imagine you went on a backpacking hike with an old friend.

Now head up to the high mountain peaks of the Adirondack Park outside of Lake Placid.

Lets begin with a nice relatively level 2 mile hike into base camp.

Now lets make it a 45 degree incline.

Now lets put in some large rocks and boulders to climb over as you go up.

Now lets add ice & snow on top of the trail, rocks and everywhere your feet should go.

Now bump up the weight of the pack close to 50 pounds.

Now take your boots and make them a half size small so your ankle rubs into blisters the whole time.

Add in 5 more miles up and downhill (one way), 15 degree nights, sleeping in bear country, and rules dictating no campfires.Backpacking the ice

THIS is what backpacking with Brian Cernik is all about ;)
