Summer officially ended and we haven't been on a single backpacking trip
and my pack and boots are anxious to change that this fall. The leaves
will change soon and standing on a ridge overlooking a red, gold, and
brown valley would be splendid. Even better is combining that ridge line
view with the up close view of an amazing waterfall or standing on the
banks of a running stream will put the hurried world where it belongs
for a few hours. Where do you like to go this time of year?
Pictures are from our Backpacking trip in the Cuyahoga Valley National park last October. We stayed over night at the Stanford Backcountry campsites after a day on the Buckeye Trail.
